About the Campaign

Soar, The Campaign for Montclair State University, is the largest and most ambitious campaign in Montclair State’s history, with a goal to raise $75 million in private contributions.

Our mission and this campaign are based on the premise that affordable, high-quality higher education matters greatly in a democratic society. It comes at a crucial time and provides an unprecedented opportunity for friends and alumni to make a lasting impact by supporting three overarching priorities designed to enhance the University’s ability to provide a vibrant educational environment:

  1. Educating Leaders: Through greater endowed and annual support, our goal is to significantly increase both the number of students supported and average award given for scholarships.
  2. Sustaining Research: As we continue our journey toward becoming a comprehensive research university, we will increase private support to attract top faculty and fund groundbreaking research.
  3. Enhancing our Campus: We will improve the campus experience for all of our students, athletes and community visitors, with enhancements that include revitalizing College Hall – transforming our first campus building into a modern, central “hub” of activity.
