Students, faculty, staff and community members gathered at the University of Wisconsin-Superior today (Friday, April 16) to celebrate the successful conclusion of Campaign Superior: Higher Expectations and its impact on student success, academic programs and the university campus.
"In terms of student scholarships, support for academic opportunities and support for needed campus buildings, the impact of Campaign Superior is tremendous," Chancellor Julius Erlenbach said. "From everyone at UW-Superior - particularly the students of past, present and future - I offer my sincere thanks to everyone who contributed."

People gave overwhelmingly to our active teaching and learning initiatives, and the university has two new buildings and a renovated library that were made possible by gifts to the campaign."
