The University contributes only 4% of the Center’s annual operating budget. Additional sources of revenue include tuition, contracts, grants, and our partnerships with businesses and organizations.
With an entrepreneurial business model, we have been an example of fiscal responsibility, maintaining a lean infrastructure as we push boundaries in transformational learning, research and discovery, and strategic innovation. We know that new frontiers can be explored and larger impacts made; yet that degree of magnitude requires investments that will enable us to build a solid core for long-term growth and sustainability.
Providing the highest quality of support for our students, strategic partners, and the general public has long been one of our core Center values.
With your generosity, we can ensure that key Center functions such as leadership, student services, instructional design, communications, and business development can thrive while utilizing new resources to further advance wellbeing.
“We know that sustaining funds are imperative to the recipient organizations because their leaders tell us that solid infrastructure is a must when striving to carry out ambitious programs and initiatives. Staffing in key functional areas such as administration, finance, communications, and development is essential in high-performing organizations. Tangible expenses related to space, heat, light, computers, professional development, and insurance are basic – yet vital – to creating healthy workplaces. Unrestricted resources allow organizational or program leaders to focus on the impact of their work and actually do what is needed to achieve those outcomes.”
