The Resurgence Fundraising Campaign

Cheyney University is in the midst of a dynamic turnaround.

A new vision.  A new trajectory.  A new leadership team.  A new applied research institute.  New strategic partners.  A new and cutting-edge approach to our students’ success.  And a renewed commitment to excellence.

Under the dynamic leadership of President Aaron A. Walton, Cheyney University is garnering attention for its compelling vision and comprehensive strategy.

Specifically, our three-pronged approach entails:

(1) executing bold strategies centered around student success, financial strength, and the highest standard of excellence;

(2) Creating a new model for higher education by forming public-private partnerships which enable career-informed curriculum and generate nontraditional sources of income; and

(3) growing enrollment and establishing a dynamic student body through increased academic standards and by attracting highly engaged students.

As we celebrate 182 years, we continue to build on our legacy as the nation’s first HBCU as we become the premier educational model for excellence in academics, character, and social responsibility. As a next step on our journey, Cheyney has launched a fundraising campaign appropriately titled the “Resurgence” to raise $10 million by November 1, 2019.

With your generous support, we will maintain the resurgence in our momentum and lay the foundation for our expanded fundraising objectives in the future. This will ensure that our students have access to the best that higher education has to offer.
