STRONGER, BETTER here
THANKS TO YOU
Muhlenberg's comprehensive campaign, The Talents Entrusted to Our Care (TETOC), surpassed its goal by more than $5 million in June 2010 and raised a record $110.4 million.
TETOC left Muhlenberg a stronger, better version of itself, significantly increasing the endowment, improving campus facilities and enriching academic offerings.
Gifts from alumni, parents and friends helped build a new science building and residence halls, an expanded Hillel, a major addition to the Life Sports Center, new rehearsal facilities for music and theatre, a Multicultural Center and the Wood Dining Commons. The academic program benefited from nine additional tenure-track faculty positions, new curricular initiatives and greatly expanded experiential learning opportunities.
MORE TO BE DONE now
FISCAL CHALLENGES AHEAD
Despite the success of The Talents Entrusted to Our Care Campaign, Muhlenberg still faces financial challenges.
Muhlenberg College's endowment-per-student, a measure of financial health, still remains half that of its key competitors. This means Muhlenberg has less flexibility in providing financial aid - vital for a small, liberal arts college that wants to recruit the most talented students. The College must continue to grow both endowment and The Muhlenberg Fund to meet short- and long-term needs.
