Defining the future of Cottey College


The Defining Moment Campaign has provided Cottey College the opportunity to grow, to expand its programming, and to enhance its campus facilities. As President of Cottey College, I am filled with gratitude for your support of this historic campaign.

Setting a goal of $35 million was ambitious; the reality of raising $40,420,737.58 is awe-inspiring.

I want to thank every person who supported this goal with time, talent, or treasure. It certainly took all three to achieve such success.

The Campaign challenged us, but our sometimes herculean efforts were motivated by one truth. A Cottey education is exceptional; a Cottey education can change a life, and we want this education to continue to be available to women. During the five years of the Campaign, the College developed and earned accreditation for additional baccalaureate programs, hired faculty and staff to offer the programs, improved library resources to support the new curriculum, added athletic teams, increased scholarships, and designed a renovation of Neale Hall and an addition to Neale to integrate the fine arts into one dynamic space.

A Defining Moment: the Campaign for Cottey College allows Cottey to move forward confidently into a future secured by your generous support. Thank you on behalf of current and future Cottey students.
