Think your state has the most Yellowjacket pride?

This fall, the Superior Fund of the UW-Superior Foundation set out to find the state that made the most contributions over a six-week period. The friendly competition ran through mid-September, and epic bragging rights were on the line. 

Every gift made a difference, no matter the amount! The state with the most individual gifts was announced during this year's All-Class Reunion weekend. The winning state was Wisconsin, who walked away with recognition by the UW-Superior Foundation! Thank you to all the states who particpated in giving to the Superior Fund as part of this challenge. We appreciate you!

Why Support the UW-Superior Foundation?

It’s an exciting year for UW-Superior, as our institution celebrates its 125th anniversary! As we look back on the 125 years of our institution’s existence, we reflect on our formative years, rich history, and continued growth. Having started as a small school for teachers called the Superior Normal School in 1893, UW-Superior has certainly evolved into a now flourishing institution. By 1971, UW-Superior joined the UW System, with new degrees added, cutting edge programs developed, and campus taking on a whole new look. Throughout this time, generous community members, alumni, and benefactors supported the institution to fuel this growth.

Today, UW-Superior boasts an enrollment over 2,500 and innovative undergraduate and graduate programs. We’re meeting the needs of our region and beyond with over 700 students in our Online and Distance Learning program. We continue to celebrate our students’ daily successes, as our dedicated faculty equip them with the tools they need to flourish in this every-changing world. Generous alumni and friends still support our Foundation as it works to benefit all the things that make UW-Superior so special and unique.

Just as we are looking back at our history and celebrating our institution’s current successes, we are also looking ahead to the future of our campus. Our institution will always strive to provide immeasurable opportunities to deserving students. We’ll always explore innovative ways to ensure our students achieve intellectual growth and career preparation on our campus, and because of this, we are certain our institution will remain Forever Superior. As we look toward our future, we’ll continue to rely on our generous community to support our students, mission and vision.
