Until Founders’ Day

Founders’ Day is a 24-hour giving event to celebrate the rich history of our university and its continued commitment to our top priority – the students of Wichita State.

Join the thousands of Shocker alumni, students, employees, parents and friends who are honoring our past and investing in our future to make a positive difference in our college and community.

Whether it’s a symbolic gift of $18.95 or much more, every gift matters.
