Priorities: Key areas in need of philanthropic support
New, Cutting-edge Facilities
A new Campus Union on the Metropolitan Campus will create a vibrant town center for students and faculty, uniting the campus.
A new Science Building on the Florham Campus will provide unparalleled education and research opportunities for students, fostering collaboration and discovery and developing new programs and partnerships.The renovation of Florham's carriage house will provide a freestanding home to the Silberman College of Business, and will include the addition of smart classrooms and lecture halls and spaces that support collaborative learning.
Expansion of the Florham Campus athletic facilities will consist of a new all-turf field, a running track, stadium-style bleachers, new baseball and softball fields and new locker room facilities.
Endowments and Scholarships
Although 90 percent of all students receive some sort of financial aid from the University, only a small percentage of that assistance is derived from endowed sources. The University must increase its endowment to provide students with scholarships and attract accomplished scholars with endowed chairs and professorships.
Two New Schools
The FDU School of the Arts consolidates the University's prestigious fine and performing arts programs.
The School of Public and Global Affairs has launched with two graduate degree programs.
The University seeks gifts to provide operational funding to both schools and to support visiting faculty and the establishment of endowed chairs.
With the School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the Henry P. Becton School of Nursing and Allied Health, FDU is uniquely positioned to become a regional leader in educating the health sciences workforce.
The University seeks investment in these programs so that it can provide students in these highly technical fields with training that prepares them to step into leadership roles in one of the areas fastest growing fields.
