The Capital Campaign
Over the past 142 years, Ursuline College has educated thousands of graduates who have gone on to positively impact their families, churches, communities, our country and the world. Ursuline College's capital campaign "Building on... Values, Voice and Vision" will further enhance the quality of education at Ursuline, thereby impacting the quality of life locally and around the world. This capital and endowment campaign will increase Ursuline's ability to provide academic excellence in state-of-the-art facilities, while increasing endowment to secure Ursuline's future. In order to strengthen its position, Ursuline must secure funding for the Center for the Creative and Healing Arts & Sciences
, a Fleur de Lis Center
to provide space for large gatherings, and an atrium connecting several campus buildings. Campaign dollars will also increase the endowment for scholarships, building maintenance, faculty and student leadership development, and further improve the quality of the College's signature academic programs, such as nursing, fashion, education, social work, the arts and the sciences and graduate programs.

Mission Then & Now
Looking to the future, adapting to meet current need and educating women are qualities that have been part of the Ursuline tradition for centuries. In 1871 Mother Mary of the Annunciation Beaumont brought the Ursuline tradition from France, establishing Ursuline as the first women's college chartered in Ohio. Now, as in the past, values, voice and vision form the foundation on which students enrich their lives, nurture families and influence the community.
Vision for the Future
Enrollment continues to increase at Ursuline College. Campus activities and sports programs are on the rise. A diverse student population (26 percent minority) reflects the demographics of our region. Seventy-five percent of Ursuline graduates remain in Northeast Ohio, further enhancing the College's increasingly prestigious reputation in the community.
Center For Creative and Healing Arts and Sciences: Today 1,450 students populate a campus built for 800 in 1966. A new academic building featuring state-of-the-art classrooms, flexible teaching and learning space and faculty offices will further enhance the quality of education at Ursuline College.
The Fleur de Lis Center will allow Ursuline to have a gathering place for up to 800 people for major speakers and College and community functions. It will also allow for conferences and celebrations on campus which are limited currently due to lack of a facility.
Renovation and Repair: Most Ursuline campus buildings were completed in the mid-sixties and are in need of upgrades. This is especially true for the Dauby Science Center. Laboratories must be renovated to provide cutting-edge technologies and learning space for students.
