DASNR Donors Exceeding Expectations

Through Branding Success: The Campaign for Oklahoma State University, donors are providing the support the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources needs to even more successfully fulfill its land-grant mission.

DASNR set a $28.5 million goal for the seven-year campaign and exceeded it with $48 million in gifts and commitments. Branding Success surpassed its $1 billion goal earlier this year, but there are still many remaining fundraising priorities on campus and in DASNR, and the campaign will continue through its scheduled conclusion in December 2014.

Tremendous donor support allowed DASNR to surpass its campaign goals in three of the four priority areas. The support funds life-changing scholarships for students who dream big and work hard. It empowers OSU to recruit and retain the best faculty and researchers, and it enhances programs that inspire academic excellence through innovative efforts. During the campaign, 22 chairs and professorships, as well as 135 scholarship funds, were added in DASNR.

But there is still work to be done. The fourth key to transforming DASNR is facility support, which funds premier teaching and research spaces and provides state-of-the-art equipment. These improvements maximize our efforts to tackle the nation’s modern problems.

Among the campaign’s remaining priorities are the Endowed Centers of Excellence, each of which focuses on a different challenge: the Water Research and Extension Center, The Botanic Garden at OSU, the Equine Center, and the Biobased Products and Energy Center. Another priority is renovating historic Barn A, which will become a premier conference center.
