Academic Endowments

PLU’s faculty and academic programs are nationally and internationally recognized for their quality and distinctiveness. Great progress has been made in bringing a global emphasis more broadly to the academic, curricular and programmatic areas of the university. That work can be accelerated through the funding of endowments with a particular global emphasis, including: curriculum development, expanding study-abroad opportunities, creating more student-faculty research opportunities, more fully opening the campus to international students, and named faculty chairs and endowed professorships in the global curriculum.
