Geneseo’s national reputation has been hard earned and is admired by our public and private peers. We’re a model of what a competitive academic program can be, built with a deep commitment to the growth of our students and the aim of preparing them for the complexities of the 21st century. As a premier public liberal arts college, Geneseo differentiates itself from other institutions by occupying a unique niche at the intersection of access and excellence.
Through the Opportunities Rising: Geneseo for Generations campaign, we will have the funding to ensure that our college’s fully immersive honors experience continues to be a gateway for talented students to become tomorrow’s leaders. We are entering a rapidly changing and challenging period in global history. Our nation will gratefully welcome the critical thinkers and complex problem solvers each Geneseo class produces, individuals who will lead us through the next century.
This campaign looks to the future with a sense of renewed hope. Our responsibility as the wider Geneseo community is to ensure that future generations persevere and prosper. The litany of Geneseo graduates who have become change makers proves vividly that every individual can make a difference if given the opportunity.
With your support, we will be able to increase access to a Geneseo education and create even greater experiences that will prepare our students for a rewarding career and life. I think I can say without hesitation that we all take satisfaction in the impact our graduates make on the world.
You understand well the value of the Geneseo experience and have seen the wonders our alumni perform on a daily basis in their towns, cities, and across the country. Geneseo is different; it sticks. My commitment to our mission has never been stronger. But we need your help, as so many of you have contributed your time, talent, and treasure. Together we can keep alive the promise of Geneseo for generations to come.
