As a leading University, our priority is to ensure students succeed in the classroom, so they can excel in the world beyond our doors. That commitment requires us to stay competitive on every level of education, from the facilities we teach in and the programs we offer to the technology our students use to learn and the training experiences they have available to them. Only through the generous support of our community are we able to meet and strengthen this commitment.
Invest in Our Students
Every dollar we raise ultimately translates to better educational and professional opportunities for our students. Whether you choose to make a one-time donation or engage in ongoing support, your gift will benefit our undergrads and graduate students in a variety of ways:
- Increase Scholarship Access: This helps high-performing students acquire a quality university education to pursue their academic and professional dreams. Additionally, this helps us retain and support deserving currently enrolled students throughout their time at UL Lafayette by reducing the strain of financial worry.
- Elevate the Student Experience: We will be able to offer practical research opportunities, work experiences, peer mentoring initiatives and supplemental instruction that opens our students’ worldviews and gives them a competitive edge in their chosen field.
- Enhance the Learning Environment: We will be able to cultivate a vibrant, student-centered learning environment with leading technology and teaching tools to produce highly skilled, innovative engineers, technologists, health professionals, and business leaders. We aim to elevate experiential learning programs that stimulate students’ creative and critical thinking.
- Optimize Facilities for Student-Athletes: With updated athletic training facilities and venues, we will be able to enhance the athletic experience for more than 400 student-athletes, bolster support and community affinity for the University’s many athletic programs, and attract future talent to represent and strengthen the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns teams.
“We gave our money so that someone who might not have had a great childhood or wasn’t raised in the best place will have an opportunity to change his or her life, and that’s what we were looking for.”
