St. Edward's Faculty and Staff Make an Impact

Each year, approximately 60 percent of faculty and staff give generously through the Faculty and Staff Campaign. Your contributions open doors of opportunity for student exploration and success, both on campus and in the wider community.

Alumni who work for the university make their gift count twice — for participation, that is. Your contribution is included in the alumni participation figures that the university submits for the very important US News and World Report rankings, and it also counts toward the participation totals for the Faculty and Staff Campaign. This is an easy two-fer and a great way to demonstrate the importance of alumni participation in annual giving.

A Message from President Fuentes

I am deeply committed to the success of the Faculty & Staff Campaign, and I’m humbled and honored to join so many generous colleagues who give of their time, talent and treasure.  

Your financial support — in addition to the time and dedication you bring to your roles in teaching, administration, athletics, facilities and more — enables us to carry forward the mission of the Congregation of Holy Cross. I thank you for your commitment to our students.

With a focus on participation, this year our goal is 60% participation. Every donation helps create a better future for our students and St. Ed’s as we advance our vision to become a Destination University for a More Just World. I’m very grateful for each of you and your efforts to advance this great university.
