WKU Fundraising Priorities

As WKU rolls out its plan to raise $200-million in new gifts and pledges by 2012.

You might be wondering what they intend to do with that money.

Western's leaders hope the "New Century of Spirit" campaign will impact Hilltoppers for years to come.

Since President Gary Ransdell took over in 1997, WKU's endowment has grown by more than
500-percent.

Dr. Ransdell says endowments allow WKU to recruit the best professors as well as fund scholarships.

Ransdell hopes some specific endeavors will see support during the campaign.
