Leadership from Day One

We have arrived at an important moment in Elon’s history. Today, Elon is recognized as the national leader in high-impact, engaged teaching and learning, thanks to the hard work and dedication of every member of our community. Elon’s leadership position is also the direct result of decades of inspired philanthropy, fueled by the generosity and commitment of alumni, parents and friends who believe deeply in preparing students to lead our future.

Elon LEADS: Our University Campaign represents a historic opportunity to elevate Elon’s leadership in higher education and to propel our great university to new levels of national distinction. I love the name of our campaign because it embodies who we are as a learning community. We educate leaders. Our experiential learning model and outstanding faculty scholars inspire students to develop their leadership talents and to go out and make their mark on a world that needs passionate, principled leaders.

We have exciting work ahead, and I am grateful for your partnership in making the Elon LEADS Campaign a success. The responsibility is ours. The privilege is ours. We need each of you invested in this campaign and in Elon’s future, because Elon leads through you.
