We are passionate about
Ferris State University.

This is a value-added institution, one that delivers an impressive return on investment. By investing in their education, students graduate job-ready, prepared to stand out as leaders in their careers. Industry, community and donors benefit by having access to this talent pool of knowledgeable, involved and responsible citizens.

We want to see this winning, value-added combination continue, to build on it and to help it grow. As co-chairs of Now & Always: The Campaign for Ferris State University, this is our mission. We are excited about Ferris’ future, one that is driven by opportunity, vision and need. With strong leadership and an experienced team in place, Ferris is poised for success.

Now is the time that we, Ferris and you, its supporters and co- visionaries, can make a reimagined, reenergized and revitalized University a reality. We urge you to join us in supporting this campaign so that future generations of students can access Ferris' unique, "go-to-work" education—one that benefits our region, our nation and our world.
