DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
Loras College has an ambitious fundraising goal that could potentially mean better pay for faculty and help with students' financial aid. On Thursday, Loras College kicked off a capital campaign called "Inspiring Lives and Leadership". The campaign will help raise funding to support student aid, program development, and faculty programming. Loras will also seek funding for its new MBA and analytics initiative.
The goal of the campaign is to raise $75 million dollars. Officials with Loras College say they have already raised $44 million towards that goal. Thomas Tauke is Campaign Chair for the Inspiring Lives and Leadership campaign.
"We are attempting to raise money to attract the very best faculty. We have a history of great faculty who focus on teaching students and in order to maintain that tradition and enhance the quality of our faculty we need to have the money to compete in the marketplace." Tauke said.
The Inspiring Lives and Leadership campaign is the most ambitious campaign in the college's 175 year history.
