Forever Superior

Why Is Alumni Participation Important?

  • By showing your support of the Superior Fund, you’re helping today’s students receive the same great Yellowjacket experience you received.
  • Your gift combines with other gifts from our alumni community to have an even greater impact. That’s why gifts of any size make a difference!
  • Strong alumni participation in giving is an endorsement of the work of UW-Superior.

Why is this Year Special?

This year, UW-Superior is celebrating its 125th anniversary! As we look back on the 125 years of our institution’s existence, we reflect on our formative years, starting as a small school for teachers called the Superior Normal School in 1893. Throughout UW-Superior’s history, generous community members, alumni, and benefactors supported the institution to fuel growth. Today, with an enrollment over 2,500, generous alumni and friends continue to support our Foundation as it works to benefit all the things that make UW-Superior so unique.

As we look ahead to the future of our campus, we will always strive to provide immeasurable opportunities to deserving students. As we do this, we will continue to rely on the generosity of our community. Gifts made to the Superior Fund this year not only support the important work of the University, but they are also an endorsement in the bright future of UW-Superior. Contributions to the Superior Fund will ensure UW-Superior remains Forever Superior.
