The UNE Moving Forward campaign was destined to make history as the University’s largest fundraising effort, with a lofty goal of $60 million. Led by Campaign Chair and UNE Trustee Emeritus Robert McAfee, M.D. and President Danielle N. Ripich Ph.D., funding initiatives aimed to fulfill the University’s 10 year strategic plan, Vision 2017. This bold plan outlined UNE’s steps to become a nationally recognized university with programs of excellence and innovation in the health professions and the arts and sciences.
The Moving Forward campaign ended on May 31, 2017, having exceeded the goal with a total of $61.6 million raised from more than 8,800 donors. The successful conclusion of the Moving Forward campaign was made possible by generous donors who invested in UNE and its promise. Your gifts have built critical infrastructure, enhanced scholarship support for students, expanded internships across colleges, supported global learning experiences, and improved access to meaningful student/faculty research.
