The promise and potential of Wichita State will be fulfilled by the people it attracts — driven, high-achieving students and exceptional faculty. People who are dedicated to excellence. Supporting them with scholarships/fellowships, chairs and professorships, financial incentives and opportunities for growth will benefit our community, region and beyond for years to come.

Academics: Wichita State has a proud tradition of inspiring entrepreneurial ambition and creative exploration. We will give today’s students the resources and environments they need to innovate and excel in a complex global economy: a new home for the W. Frank Barton School of Business, and cutting edge labs in the new Experiential Engineering Building.

Athletics: We will protect and maximize our investment in WSU athletics by renovating Charles Koch Arena and completing the final step in a five-part project to enhance Eck Stadium.

programs



Wichita State’s commitment to applied learning means providing programs that fully immerse students in their fields of study. That means connecting students with internships and co-op experiences. Offering them affordable and abundant opportunities for study abroad. Providing distinctive programs that emphasize research, discovery, creative expression and personal growth.

Among the student-centered programs this campaign seeks to support are the Career Services Office, which provides opportunities for work experience and professional development; Fine Arts performances and Ulrich Museum exhibitions, which offer educational and cultural enrichment; and activities such as the Shocker New Venture Competition and the Koch Innovation Challenge, which take learning beyond the classroom to real-world scenarios.
