Harvey Mudd is on a Mission BUOYED BY THE MORE THAN $103 MILLION in gifts and pledges already raised during the leadership phase of the campaign, Harvey Mudd College launched its $150 million comprehensive campaign Feb. 1. “Harvey Mudd is on a mission,” says President Maria Klawe. “We seek to fund the people, programs and places that will allow us to ensure that a steady stream of passionate problem solvers is available to address the most pressing issues of our time.” The Campaign for Harvey Mudd College, the largest in the College’s history, seeks to expand and strengthen the College’s renowned undergraduate science and engineering education—an innovative, interdisciplinary and hands-on educational experience that includes a unique commitment to the humanities, social sciences and the arts. The campaign will also enable the College to share its innovative practices with others to improve STEM education nationally. “There is no question this nation needs more students preparing for and graduating from science and engineering disciplines,” says board of trustees and campaign Chair Wayne Drinkward ’73.

Fundraising priorities include: Funding new endowed faculty positions to support the broad and rigorous curriculum Expanding experiential learning opportunities both on- and off-campus, in the United States and abroad Increasing funding for annual and endowed student scholarships Bolstering funding for Harvey Mudd’s community engagement efforts, some of which help prepare students from underrepresented groups for careers in the STEM fields

Expanding artistic and musical events at the College and supporting student extracurricular activities, such as art, music and athletics Improving and expanding the College’s infrastructure, including the construction of a new residence hall and academic building

Sisi Cheng ’15, Elly Schofield ’13, Kevin Schofield P13, President Maria Klawe, Jim Boerkoel and Liz Boerkoel gather at the Campaign for Harvey Mudd College launch.
