Message from the President

What are you for?

On Oct. 18, 2018 with the announcement of a new comprehensive campaign, Wofford College once again made history in its commitment to our mission of providing superior liberal arts education that prepares students for extraordinary and positive contributions to society. The focus of Wofford’s mission is upon fostering commitment to excellence in character, performance, leadership, service to others and lifelong learning, and by 2022 the college will raise $300 million toward that goal.

The good news is that through For Wofford: The Campaign for Wofford College, we already have secured $262 million in gifts and pledges, including the completion of the Stewart H. Johnson Greek Village, the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts and the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium. We also have added $32 million in new endowed scholarship funding.

This Wofford Today shares the four pillars of the Wofford experience that campaign funding will support:

  • Student Opportunity in an Inclusive Community.
  • Excellence in Academics.
  • Distinctive Student Experiences.
  • Our Historic Campus.

Read more about each and the way the Wofford community is already lending its support. Students are experiencing the benefits of new buildings and programs, faculty enrichment, curriculum enhancements and additional scholarships.

Over the next few years, we will ask you to consider how you can become a part of this exciting vision for Wofford College. Think about what you’re for. The success of our students and the positive impact they one day will have on our world depend on it.

For Wofford!

Nayef H. Samhat
11th President of Wofford College
