The ongoing success of the USF: Unstoppable Campaign continues to transform the USF System. Since its launch in July of 2005, more than 140 thousand alumni and friends just like you have joined together to support the institutions of the USF System. Our students and faculty in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Manatee have all benefitted, and our system is stronger today thanks to your support.
The changes in the physical landscape across the USF System are nothing short of extraordinary. Gifts led to the creation of a new athletics district in Tampa, a new heart of campus in St. Petersburg and new buildings and laboratories supporting the academic mission across the system.
Faculty and students have certainly benefitted from having new environments for research, study, work and play. But they’ve also experienced a growth in scholarship offerings for our students and in professorships and chairs for our faculty. The academic mission has also received strong upgrades in software, hardware and other learning tools for use by our students and faculty.
Through all of these changes, we have remained focused on making a difference in our communities and in the world at large. A founding principle of the campaign was to support global and community impact. And so we have. Gifts have made possible inner-city health clinics and student-built orphanages in foreign lands. We’ve expanded our global research in diabetes with an emphasis on care for patients here at home. And we’re working to make drinking water safe for everyone.
But with everything we’ve accomplished working with supporters like you, we know there is much more to be done. That’s why we’re committed to a second phase of the USF: Unstoppable Campaign. As the name implies, there’s no stopping us, and no limit to what we can accomplish together.
Thank you for your continued support for the USF System and the Campaign. Working together, we are unstoppable.
