Wedgworth Leadership Institute Endowment

The goal of the Phase II Campaign is to secure the WLI Directorship with a $2.5 million endowment.  Endowing the WLI Directorship ensures an agricultural leadership professor is always available to lead the program.  Currently, the director’s position is funded through a state line with no additional guaranteed funding. Likewise, an endowed directorship provides a strong recruiting incentive to the next director.  

We’ve raised more than $1.5 million for the directorship endowment. Please consider how you can help.
