The Campaign for Valley City State University, is to ensure the future of our school and a quality experience for each student.

The campaign aims to raise $25 million for updating student athletic facilities, educational spaces and to provide scholarship support. Campaign supporters will gather at the W.E Osmon Fieldhouse to learn more about the campaign and celebrate the early success it has achieved.

VCSU President Dr. Alan LaFave said, “This campaign will propel VCSU into the future. We are continuously ranked as a U.S. News “Best College,” experience record-breaking enrollment, and have a top-ranked Elementary Education Program.  Our success has grown the University and helped us realize it is time to invest in improving our facilities and scholarship support for our students.”

He said, “Our mission is to provide the best possible student experience every single day.   The Forward Together campaign will make that happen. I’m excited to see how the campaign will transform our campus and open doors for future Vikings.”

VCSU Athletic Director Jill DeVries, added, “Our athletic programs play an important role on campus, and in the community.  Upgrading our training and competition facilities will allow us to continue to recruit and retain the most talented student-athletes. To continue our success, we must pursue efforts like the Forward Together campaign.”
