Emory & Henry College announced today the public phase of an $80 million campaign, an historic initiative that will dramatically strengthen the student experience at the 180-year-old institution.

Ascend, The Campaign for New Heights, is a dynamic plan with five goals that will fund scholarships, enhance facilities, embrace technology, enable faculty and enrich the student experience.

Since 2014, the campaign has raised an unprecedented $60 million to date during the “silent” phase. As it moves into the public phase, progress in several areas is already evident, most significantly with the growth of the School of Health Sciences at the E&H Marion Campus and the development of Ampersand, an innovative, experiential approach to learning.

Funding will also be provided for scholarships, faculty support, athletic facilities renewal/expansion, Kelly Library renovation, new fitness facility, Civic Innovation Institute, Center for Global Studies and more.
