FOUNDATION LETTER - 2

Dear Alumni and Friends, This has been an amazing year for Washburn University because of you. Your ongoing commitment to the University and your generosity have resulted in a record-breaking year for donations to Washburn. This past fiscal year, donors made gifts totaling more than $16.5 million to endowments, scholarships, building projects and other important needs of the University. Additionally, supporters designated nearly $4.5 million during the year in revocable gifts in their estate plans to benefit Washburn in the future. That is remarkable! Your gifts for student scholarships truly make a difference. During this year, the donors of today and yesterday provided privately funded scholarships to 1,804 students through current and endowed scholarship gift funds. Nearly 84 percent of our students work to help pay their expenses, and scholarships are often the difference between being able to obtain a college education or not. Your collective gifts also support faculty and programs. These contributions help us attract and retain the very best talent in the classroom, thereby continuing our tradition of teaching excellence for today’s and tomorrow’s Ichabods. We are very grateful for your support. Your gifts help ensure the success of our students. This is an exciting time for Washburn as we celebrate our nearly 150-year heritage and prepare for the future. As many of you know, this past year we wrapped up the silent phase of 150 Forward: The Campaign for Washburn University in preparation for the public launch just a few weeks ago. We know this campaign will help shape the future of Washburn for generations to come.

We also know we will be successful because of alumni and friends like you who believe in Washburn and the transformational experience an education has on our students, their families and the communities in which they live and work. As you read through the Bell Tower, we hope you will see through the stories how your gifts impact our students and faculty. You truly play a pivotal role in Washburn’s story. Thank you again for your commitment to the University.

JuliAnn Mazachek President Washburn University Foundation


3 - 150 FORWARD

150 Forward campaign hosts public launch, sets bold goals 150 Forward: The Campaign for Washburn University kicked off Oct. 26, 2013, in front of Washburn donors, faculty, staff and students during a historic Homecoming weekend. It is a campaign with ambitious goals that will mean big things – first within Washburn, and then in the world beyond. Since its founding, Washburn has been steered with deliberate intent and forethought. Through bold vision and leadership, and the financial resources

to back up that vision, the Washburn University Foundation will raise $100 million for four fundamental areas where Washburn is ready to dream bigger: Students: $35 million Faculty & Programs: $35 million Spaces: $20 million Annual Giving: $10 million


150 FORWARD - 4 At the event, Jerry Farley, president, Washburn University, and Juli Mazachek, president, Washburn University Foundation, shared that $55 million from 12,123 donors has been raised during the silent phase of the campaign, which started in 2009. The campaign is set to conclude in 2016. In addition to the campaign, Washburn will be raising $20 million for a new School of Law building, and that campaign will conclude in 2018. “Washburn has a rich history of providing an education to diverse individuals who sought to improve the world around them,” Farley said. “This campaign will enhance scholarship assistance for students, support talented faculty, transform campus spaces and sustain annual giving to move Washburn to a new level.” Marking the 150th anniversary of the University in 2015, the campaign aims to make Washburn a top-five Midwest master’s-level university by the year 2025. “We are so gratified by the generosity of donors who have committed to ensuring that thousands of future Ichabods will have the same opportunities they had to receive an education and realize their passions,” Mazachek said. “We must continue to move forward.” This is a pivotal moment for Washburn. It is time to make an exceptional educational experience possible for more students, to bring – and keep – the most talented teachers and learners to the University, to send great minds abroad and to turn well-respected programs into nationally recognized ones.

5 - STUDENTS

Debate champ finds Washburn logical choice Ian Mikkelsen, junior, Topeka, is a strategically focused student. He was thoughtful in his choice of schools, wanting to make sure he was enrolling in a good business school with a challenging major. He chose economics and communication at Washburn University. He wanted to be a part of a college debate team that did parliamentary debate, which focuses more on the logic of the argumentation and less on the evidence provided in a debate round. He chose the nationally recognized Washburn debate program. And when he inquired about becoming a part of the Washburn Honors Program, he was excited for the opportunities as a student to help expand membership and responsibilities of the organization. His focus on what he’s involved in comes from not only a desire to learn, but also the time and ability to do so because of scholarships.

“The sheer scholarship capability that Washburn has allows me to keep focus on school, debate and the honors program.” _____________________ Ian Mikkelsen

“The sheer scholarship capability that Washburn has allows me to focus on school, debate and the honors program,” Mikkelsen said. “I’m not spending my time working as a grocery store cashier trying to find out how I’m going to pay for my next ham sandwich.” While debate, academic and honors program scholarships help pay for him to go to school, he is

working every week as an assistant high school debate coach at Seaman High School in Topeka. “I still need to work to keep money in the bank, but scholarships give me the ability to choose the kind of work that will help me in the future,” he said. “I’m very grateful to the donors for that flexibility.” That work – debate – has become his passion. On top of working with a local high school debate program, he travels to at least five college tournaments around the country each semester competing against top schools such as California-Berkeley, Texas Tech and Colorado College. Each tournament takes hours of reading, prep work and practice rounds. “The great thing about the debate program is that the coaches are willing to help any student who shows up and puts the work in,” he said. “They really help me expand on how I think about things, and there is good synergy among the coaches.” With his dedication and hard work, it’s not surprising his next step is already planned, too. He’d like to attend law school, and he plans to take the daunting LSAT in the summer. “I haven’t completely decided on what I want to do with a law degree, but I enjoy researching and making arguments, and I want to help people,” he said. Scholarships provide a pathway to success for every student, regardless of field or finances, and reinforce what is at the heart of Washburn – to provide a world-class education for anyone who is willing to work for it.

STUDENTS Washburn University was born out of this simple, brilliant idea: education for all. When Massachusetts philanthropist Ichabod Washburn gifted the University – then Lincoln College – with $25,000 in 1868, it was because he believed in the transformative power of education In fiscal year for everyone. 2012-2013,

Washburn awarded

Many endowed scholarships also were established this year for students majoring in mass media, art, psychology, social work, business and nursing, as well as students in the School of Law. The 150 Forward campaign goal of $35 million will raise the number of scholarships awarded and their dollar amount dramatically. Students with special talent, a high grade point average or ACT score, or financial need will greatly benefit from this campaign, making a Washburn-caliber education even more accessible for thousands of students for generations to come.


7 - FACULTY & PROGRAMS

History teacher uses storytelling, role-playing to engage students Tony Silvestri, lecturer in the Washburn University history department, remembers fondly his ninth-grade history teacher, Cliff Avron. Maps and flags covered Avron’s over-stimulating classroom, and he told amazing stories. Since that time, Silvestri knew his calling was to be a history teacher. After earning his doctorate, he spent more than a decade working at a private high school in California. When tragedy struck and his wife passed away from cancer, he moved to Kansas where his family lived so they could help him raise his two children. Intending to find another job at a private high school, he instead found Washburn University and started teaching as an adjunct lecturer.

“I found this university by mistake,” he said, “but it has been a good fit. This is a university that values teaching and teaching excellence.” Now a full-time lecturer, Silvestri has covered his office in Henderson Learning Resources Center in maps and flags just like Avron and uses his classroom to engage students through role-playing, strategy games and storytelling. “I get paid to wear Roman armor to class,” Silvestri said. “I’m a storyteller, and it’s a most effective way of teaching history.” He also makes a living as a lyricist, writer and artist. Silvestri has taught art classes at the Lawrence


FACULTY & PROGRAMS - 8 (Kan.) Arts Center and joined choral composer Eric Whitacre to write an illustrated children’s book, SLEEP. He applies all of these talents in the classroom. In a recent upper-level medieval class, Silvestri used his artistic and writing skills to develop a scroll-like, hand-bound, illuminated book chained to a desk in the library. He ran the class like one that would have been taught in Paris in the 1300s. Students wore graduation robes, referred to him as Magister and debated each other over medieval policies. “Back then, people could not afford books, so they shared,” Silvestri said. “The one book in the library required the students to share, and often you would find them reading and studying together.” Silvestri said all faculty members in the history department are dynamic in their classroom teachings. The department hosts the statewide History Day, brings in re-enactors and has connections with historical organizations around the area. “We crave outreach and innovation in the classroom, but of course that requires financial assistance,” he said. “Scholarships for deserving students are also very important.” Silvestri said these extra activities outside and inside the classroom are something students don’t forget. “It is less important to me if they remember when Caesar was killed,” he said. “I want them to remember that history is fun and dynamic, and if they do that, it’s a win.” Our faculty are the very core of the Washburn educational experience. Our distinguished programs set us apart from other institutions. Supporting faculty and program initiatives, such as the innovative teaching methods Silvestri uses, is a major component of 150 Forward: The Campaign for Washburn University. To support the work of faculty members at Washburn, please go to GiveToWashburn.org/GiveNow.

FACULTY & PROGRAMS Washburn is distinguished by the passion of its professors for the success of students. It’s this relationship Washburn treasures and upon which it thrives. This year, one of the many ways gifts contributed to Washburn’s programs was to enhance professorships, specifically in the School of Business. Areas in business strategy will be strengthened because of a generous donation to an already-established professorship. In the College of Arts and Sciences, a new mathematics fund will help the math department purchase technology and pay expenses for students and faculty to attend conferences. Additionally, 14 faculty members took Sweet Sabbaticals this year. Mary Sweet, a former Washburn University student, taught school in Italy and Seattle. She established the Sweet Summer Sabbatical Fund in 1955 to fund faculty travel and research. Faculty then bring back to the classroom their knowledge and experiences to share with students and other faculty. Through 2013, more than 500 faculty members have participated in the opportunity. The 150 Forward campaign’s aggressive fundraising goal of $35 million for faculty and programs includes a commitment to faculty funding unsurpassed at similar institutions. We seek to increase dramatically the level of endowed funds to honor and support outstanding teaching faculty at all levels, and we cannot do it without your support.

Fundraising moving forward for Welcome Center project In March 2012, the Washburn University Board of Regents approved moving forward to design the addition of a Welcome Center and renovate Morgan Hall to better serve the needs of students. The Washburn University Foundation embarked on a $12 million fundraising project for the Welcome Center and, with the generosity of many donors, has raised $3.6 million to date toward that goal.

and additional student gathering spaces,” explained Richard Liedtke, executive director of Enrollment Management. The Welcome Center and renovation of Morgan Hall will be possible only with the support and generosity of our alumni and friends. Naming opportunities are available for gifts of $25,000 or greater.

“We are very excited about the progress the Welcome Center has made and believe this project is a strong investment in our students, faculty and everyone who visits the University,” said Juli Mazachek, president, Washburn University Foundation. Key gifts from donors such as Tim and Carole Etzel, Gilbert Galle, Ed and Julie Glotzbach, Steve and Brenda Kitchen, and Security Benefit have served as a catalyst for continued fundraising for the Welcome Center project. The project will focus on creating a distinctive front entrance to the University from 17th Street and add a comprehensive “one stop” student services area. The Welcome Center will include an expanded Student Health Center, new counseling space, additional classrooms and smaller conference rooms that can be used for seminars and student organization and departmental meetings. “The newly renovated space will provide students with seamless access to essential services such as admissions, financial aid, academic advisers, student life and student health. It will include modern classrooms

New building to reflect changing curriculum Constructed after the 1966 tornado, the Washburn University School of Law has undergone numerous additions and renovations to improve the educational experience and program offerings for students. After a careful review and comparison of the learning and teaching spaces in our current facility with the needs of the future, plans are underway to raise funds for a new School of Law building. “The legal curriculum today is much more hands-on than it was 45 years ago,” said Thomas Romig, dean of the law school. “New courses require different types of classroom spaces, teaching resources and technology. In the future, we must have additional common spaces for students, collaborative work spaces and classrooms designed for skills instruction.” A new building also will expand room for special programs and the Centers for Excellence, the Law

Clinic, the Law Library, a second courtroom, student organizations and community legal activities. Leadership gifts from George and Theresa Barton, Bill and Claudia Berkley, Andrew Focht and Gloria Farha Flentje, Jeffrey and Kelly Hewett, Richard Hite, Paul and Jeanne Hoferer, and Richard Rossman have greatly contributed to the fundraising project which will likely end in 2018. “Washburn Law has an excellent reputation regionally and nationally for its high-quality, affordable education,” said Paul Hoferer, jd ‘75, president of the School of Law Board of Governors and chair of the School of Law development committee. “In order to retain that competitive edge and provide the same experience for future students, the school must have a new facility with the functionality of a 21st century learning environment.”

11 - ANNUAL GIVING

Giving back to Washburn a good fit for former volleyball player Becky Hanish Tenbrink, ba ’02, mba ’04, Topeka, typifies an exemplary NCAA student-athlete – a volleyball player who plays a sport she loves for four years and then moves on to a professional career off the court. As a product development manager for Payless ShoeSource today, Tenbrink works with merchants, design teams and product development teams to take athletic shoes from concept to a product sold in stores around the world. In her career, she applies what she learned in the classroom at Washburn University as a physical education major, business practices she learned while working on her master’s and firsthand knowledge from the volleyball court about what athletes really want in a shoe. “I really enjoyed learning in college about how the body moves and how it reacts to different things,” Tenbrink said. “I am using my physical education background right now when it comes to range of motion and how the foot works.” She said her professors knew she was a student-athlete and would regularly ask her about how she was doing. “I really appreciate that my professors knew me at Washburn,” she said. “I always knew that I could speak to my professors on a personal level and they would understand my question. I didn’t have to go through a graduate student to get to my professor.” As a young alumna, she has chosen to honor her education and experiences at Washburn by donating

to Washburn Athletics every month since 2006. Tenbrink was a recipient of volleyball and academic scholarships while at Washburn, which enabled her to play the sport she loves and keep her grades up as a full-time student-athlete. She received support from her parents and worked a part-time job to take care of other expenses.


ANNUAL GIVING - 12 Looking back, she said those scholarships also gave her the opportunity to have more time to spend with her fellow teammates. “The team was my second family,” Tenbrink said. “We always hung out on and off the court, and we are still such good friends today that I know it was the best thing that I could have added to my college experience.” Tenbrink said she donates every month because she wants to give other students that same opportunity.

“My donations are a way that I can still be a part of the program that put me through school and hopefully my contribution has helped other student-athletes.” _________________

“I really enjoyed my experience at Washburn, Becky Hanish Tenbrink whether it was my academics or playing on the team, so I just felt it was the right thing to do,” she said. “My donations are a way that I can still be a part of the program that put me through school, and hopefully my contributions have helped other student-athletes.” Annual giving helps sustain Washburn’s focus and is the foundation of everything we do. It helps us meet immediate needs and gives us the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. To support annual giving and 150 Forward: The Campaign for Washburn University, please go to GiveToWashburn.org/GiveNow.

ANNUAL GIVING Washburn’s collective focus will always be on students and the ways we help them grow: through life-changing scholarships, expert faculty, leading programs and a much-loved campus. This year, because of donors like you, annual gifts have helped us sustain that focus and maintain our strong fiscal foundation. Your contributions have helped fund programs like First-Year Experience, which acclimates Annual gifts to the traditional and nontraditional students University this year to campus and college have touched each life. Students learn how to navigate a collegiate and every program library, develop study offered at Washburn. habits and discover the importance of getting involved on campus. Programs like First-Year Experience help increase Washburn’s retention rate and enable students to focus on their academic careers so they can graduate and pursue their profession. Annual gifts to the University this year have touched each and every program offered at Washburn – scholarships, supplies for science and allied health labs, technology upgrades for classrooms and conference fees for students. Annual giving allows the University to take advantage of unanticipated opportunities for student and faculty enrichment. The 150 Forward campaign goal of $10 million will play an integral role in securing a meaningful education for students today and for years to come.
