Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has launched the public phase of a $250 million fundraising initiative. "Mission Driven," which has already brought in $165 million through the private phase, will focus on boosting educational approaches and technologies, new spaces and faculty support.
President Jim Conwell says "it’s not an overstatement to say that Rose-Hulman prepares students to change the world. For 144 years, we’ve been coming together to inspire, innovate, dream, and impact. And now, we have a chance to go further." He added the funds raised will help Rose-Hulman "remain at the forefront of STEM higher education."
Affordability and accessibility, Rose-Hulman says, are key to "Mission Driven" and the largest chunk of the campaign — $100 million — will go toward scholarships and financial aid.
