Improving Lives-Phase II

Thanks to generous alumni and friends, the College of Education and Human Development’s Improving Lives Campaign has raised nearly $75 million to support faculty, students, research, and outreach. Now, in conjunction with the University of Minnesota’s Driven campaign, we are launching Phase II to build on the transformative work of the college and the ongoing needs of our community, nation, and world.

The next phase will stretch our goal to $100 million, providing critical resources for people, research, programs, and capital projects. Learn more about our priorities.

Together, we can impact the health and well-being of people in Minnesota and around the globe.

The Improving Lives campaign goal is to raise $100 million by 2021.
