The Second Century Campaign

Faculty-Staff Kickoff

September 3, 2009

SMU's faculty and staff component of The Second Century Campaign kicks off today with various events by schools and areas, culminating in an all-University celebration hosted by SMU President R. Gerald Turner at 4 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Umphrey Lee Center.

SMU officially launched The Second Century Campaign – the largest fundraising effort in SMU history – on September 12, 2008. At that time, it was announced that the University had set a goal of raising $750 million by 2013.

As the University continues to broaden the campaign’s scope, the faculty and staff effort is being officially launched with today's kick-off events. The co-chairs of the Campaign Steering Committee for Faculty and Staff are Harold W. Stanley, the Geurin-Pettus Distinguished Chair in American Politics and Political Economy, and Julie A. Wiksten (’78, ‘92), executive director of Auxiliary Services.
