Annual Giving Campaign
At the conclusion of the 2011-12 Annual Giving Campaign, 8,669 alumni, or 52.75 percent, provided $11.3 million, including over $4.4 million in unrestricted funds. This marks the seventh consecutive year of alumni participation of over 50 percent. No other law school in the nation has approached that.
Private donations provide funding for faculty benefits and summer research support, scholarships and financial aid for students, library needs, student publications, organizations, and activities, and other priorities as they develop. Donations also fund Law Grounds maintenance, renovation, and expansion projects. Law School's current strength and national standing can be attributed directly to private support.
