We are pleased to present the 2016-2017 Annual Report on Gifts and Contributions to Virginia State University. This was a special year for all of us, as VSU continues to strive to attract and retain the best and brightest students.
Virginia State University has a remarkable history and a compelling story. The beauty of our campus and the diversity of our academic offerings are unrivaled by any other institution in the Commonwealth. We must continue to build on our successes to secure even more meaningful academic and financial growth. In its history, Virginia State University has grown into a truly global institution.
As institutions of higher education have become more inclusive, the environment in which VSU operates has become increasingly competitive. Your support is critical for VSU to recruit and retain top students, to provide the infrastructure necessary for a challenging academic environment and to encourage endeavors that lead to a richer educational experience.
Investors in Virginia State University, whether alumni, corporations or foundations, will only do so if they feel confident in our ability to provide a meaningful return, through student success and financial stability. We are committed each day to ensuring the viability of these investments.
We are proud of our heritage and of our noble mission. Our focus now though, is not on what we’ve been, but on what we endeavor to become. Through your support, our future is limitless!
Thank you for your continued support of Virginia State University. Hail State! Hail State! Hail, Hail, Hail!
