Annual Report


When we describe SMU by saying "World Changers Shaped Here," what do we mean? The stories on the pages that follow make it clear. You can read about inspiring students, alumni, faculty and staff who have made the most of the opportunities offered to them at SMU and now make a difference in their professions and communities.

These stories demonstrate several of the University's defining characteristics: our close relationship with Dallas; an entrepreneurial spirit expressed in every discipline and area of the University; innovative collaborations across departments and fields that produce new knowledge and creative expression; enrichment experiences for our students and friends; and ethical leadership.

Pony Power: Strengthening the Stampede – our three-year initiative to increase current-use giving – strives to reinforce and strengthen the effectiveness of the people and programs behind each and every one of these defining characteristics. When you invest in SMU, you become a stakeholder in all the incredible work of our students, faculty and staff. Thank you for everything you do to ensure that world changers are shaped at SMU.
