“Thank you faculty, staff, alumni and friends for your personal gifts over the last few months to the Chancellor’s Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success. It means a lot to me to know that so many people feel as strongly as I do about the educational experience of our students. This is the kind of initiative we will need for UW-Stout to continue to provide a quality educational experience for our students during a period of declining state resources. This is an ongoing initiative. Collectively we can grow the Chancellor’s Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success to a sustainable level. Thank you for your support.”- Chancellor Bob Meyer
The Stout University Foundation began in 1962 with a handful of visionaries who awarded two $100 scholarships after a fundraising campaign selling commemorative buttons during homecoming week. Today, thanks to many donors, advisors and partners, the Foundation is able to award $650,000 annually in scholarships and support to our current students. About Us >>
