NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- With a campus tucked away in the quiet, rolling farmlands of western PA, an outside observer might assume that nothing terribly groundbreaking happens at Westminster or behind the walls of Old Main, especially in a department that uses the word “institution” in their name. However, that observer would be wrong. For the past two years Westminster’s Department of Institutional Advancement has been working hard and without much fanfare to secure the financial future of this college.
They have effectively sought and secured the investments needed to push this college “ever higher”, and in doing so, successfully broken all previous records when it comes to fundraising dollars at Westminster. This means a brighter future for student scholarships, faculty advancement, and plans for brick and mortar projects all of which will expand Westminster’s effectiveness as a leading liberal arts college.
On Friday, September 21st a quiet, but ever so effective campaign goes public with a time of announcement and celebration. President Dorman will speak at the Wallace Memorial Chapel at 11:40 am and detail the campaign’s successes so far. Students are invited and encouraged to be a part of something truly exciting, and catch a glimpse of what lies ahead for Westminster. Afterwards a campus wide barbecue with mounds of food will be served on the quad for all students, staff, and faculty. Did we mention that it’s free?
Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Gloria Cagigas says this day is noteworthy for current students since much of their future is affected by the commitment and investment of Westminster’s alumni.
