Olivet, Mich. – Olivet College unveiled plans for a $3.3 million, 14-month fund-raising endeavor during its 2002 Homecoming festivities on Saturday, Oct. 12. With the tagline “Responsible Liberal Arts,” the Olivet College Heritage Campaign is designed to support and expand the college’s 158-year-old mission of providing an intellectually stimulating and culturally diverse environment for the teaching of liberal arts and sciences.
The Heritage Campaign will raise resources and support for three major aims of Olivet College: academic excellence, athletic achievement and campus improvement. These goals encompass much of the vital operation of Olivet College. The campaign will run through December 31, 2003.
“This campaign will allow us to significantly improve existing public and private spaces while developing new cutting-edge environments for learning and living, working and playing,” said Olivet President Donald L. Tuski, ‘85. “Olivet was built upon the solid foundation of teaching the divine art and science of doing good to others, while providing students with the means of intellectual, moral and spiritual improvement. Through this campaign, we will put Olivet College in position to lead in developing individuals who embrace the values of responsibility, teamwork, inclusiveness and altruism.”
According to Tuski, all college departments played a role in planning for allocation of campaign funds. Plans include classroom and building renovations, academic program enhancements, and technology and athletic facility upgrades.
