Honoring our traditions. Building our future.

The University Liggett School endowment

Exponential. Enduring. Essential.

Our Sure Foundations campaign’s endowment phase is a focused effort to ensure long-term support for three key institutional priorities:

Our Tradition of Opportunity – Opening our doors to bright, talented and dedicated students whose diversity of backgrounds enrich our institution happens with the help of a robust scholarships and financial aid program. Current scholarships, new endowed scholarships and scholarships that honor esteemed faculty and staff are all tuition assistance models that the endowment directly supports.

Our Tradition of Innovation – Encouraging experimentation, problem solving and thinking with innovative technology that complements and enhances learning is a hallmark of a University Liggett School education.The endowment enhances our inquiry-based educational approach by funding integrated technology, including Internet and computer upgrades, our Makerspace, Smart Boards and other in-class technology, and faculty and staff positions in the technology department.

Our Tradition of Excellence - Sustaining rich, faculty-led educational experiences and premier learning spaces that promote sharing and discovery is perhaps the endowment-funded area most authentic and vital to our mission as a school. Faculty professional development, experiential learning opportunities, the Upper School Advanced Research Program, community learning forums, student organizations and the creation of engaging and secure spaces where learning flourishes are critical differentiators made possible by the endowment.
