The Great Expectations campaign will help move the university forward in four crucial areas:

Taken collectively, their individual efforts toward the university's $1 billion goal represent a strong commitment to embracing the impossible.
A successful campaign happens, in part, when its leadership is strong and focused.

The trustees are supported in their efforts by a team of committed volunteers. The campaign co-chairs and honorary co-chairs provide counsel on broad policy direction and fundraising power for the campaign.
