Annual Donor Report

First for the future

As the first university in the West, we celebrate a tradition as leaders — in the diverse nature of the student body we attract, our emphasis on collaborative learning, and through our talented faculty. Our university provides students with critical knowledge that’s not just highly valued in our ever-changing world — it’s essential.

So where do we go from here?

Our strategic plan sets a bold vision for Willamette “to become the Northwest’s leading institution for rigorous, personalized liberal arts and graduate professional education, attractive to students and faculty from across the nation and around the world.”

The support of our dedicated alumni and friends is vital to the realization of our far-reaching goals. The following pages highlight a few of the many stories of student achievement and success made possible by such support.

As you can see, your generous gifts of time, talent and treasure make an enormous impact on our people and our programs. Thank you for helping us live up to our bold aspirations and noble motto, as we put our most important priority — educating tomorrow’s leaders — first.

Non nobis solum nati sumus,

Stephen E. Thorsett
