  • Love and Loyalty aims to secure the future for generations of Muleriders to come
    Ron Harrell

    Southern Arkansas University has launched the boldest fundraising initiative in its 110-year history. The Love and Loyalty Campaign aims to strengthen SAU’s commitment to affordability and innovation. The University’s public launch of the campaign took place through a series of events on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7. During that time, alumni and friends experienced the advancements taking place at SAU. Attendees enjoyed a variety of activities including a trapshooting demonstration, rocket launch, presentation of student research posters, a reception with coaches, and more.

    Through the Love and Loyalty Campaign, the University seeks to raise $22 million over five years to benefit student enrichment, faculty and staff support, academic programs, student life and community engagement, revitalized facilities and athletics. A major focus of this effort is the strengthening of the SAU Foundation endowment, which annually provides resources for scholarships, academic enrichments, professorships, and athletics. (more…)
