Faculty & Staff Campaign

The One [of a Kind] Campaign allows us, as faculty and staff, to support areas that we are passionate about.  We have the opportunity to participate in ways beyond what we do every day.  Gifts can be made to support student aid and the immediate needs of Puget Sound or one can support our esteemed faculty by making a gift to the Teaching in Excellence Award or Faculty Sabbaticals endowments. Community members can choose to contribute to the Community Scholarship Fund or a gift to support athletics.

The University's Highest Priorities

Besides financial aid, faculty and staff giving provides necessary funds to enable the university to respond quickly to opportunities that enrich the Puget Sound experience:

  • Student Financial Aid
    Participating in the Faculty and Staff Campaign will help provide tuition assistance for students—talented, dedicated individuals who now have the opportunity for a Puget Sound education because the university has provided a significant amount of financial aid. More than two-thirds of Puget Sound students require need-based financial aid and the university continually strives to meet the full demand.
  • Faculty Excellence
    Great teaching has been a tradition at Puget Sound since our earliest days. Committed to educating the next generation of leaders, academic programs of the highest quality are taught in a supportive environment with small class sizes. A student-to-professor ratio of 12 to 1 gives young minds and spirits the opportunity to learn to think critically and make informed decisions. Puget Sound Fund support enables the university to retain top-notch faculty to match the talents of our students.
  • Technology
    In an ever-changing world, the university is committed to providing vital technological upgrades and resources.
  • Collins Memorial Library
    Philanthropic support enables the newly renovated Collins Memorial Library to provide for new collections and sophisticated media and technology.
  • Undergraduate Research
    The University of Puget Sound offers undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in concentrated research, with personal guidance from a faculty member that is usually offered only at the graduate level at other universities.
