Antioch University Receives $1 Million Gift To Support “Fund For The Future”
Contribution will support the launch of GIS Certificate and support and scale up the campus’s academic programming in Nonprofit Management and Educator Credentialing
Antioch University has announced that an anonymous donor has made a $1 million contribution to the University’s “Fund for the Future.” The gift will support the scaling up of existing programs across the University system and launch new degree programs in the low-residency and hybrid model. The gift will support programs at each of Antioch’s five campuses located in Seattle; Keene, New Hampshire; Los Angeles; Santa Barbara; and Yellow Springs, Ohio; as well as the Graduate School of Leadership and Change. The “Fund for the Future” campaign has a goal of $5 million over the next three years and is currently at $1.2 million.
“This is an exciting gift to receive,” said Bill Groves, Interim Chancellor of Antioch University. “New opportunities are now open to us as the University continues its trajectory of growth and expansion of program offerings.”
In collaboration with Antioch University New England’s Environmental Studies faculty, Antioch University Los Angeles is offering a certificate in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) through distance education. This certificate will also serve as a concentration in the low-residency MA in Urban Sustainability program. The gift will also be used to support and scale up the campus’s academic programming in Nonprofit Management and educator credentialing.
“We are deeply grateful for this extraordinary gift and the inspiration it provides for others to support students and the University,” added Groves.
