Planting for the Future

PLANTING FOR DORDT'S FUTURE

Now, more than ever, our nation needs a generation of well-educated, wise men and women with a firm grounding of faith, able to bring change to our world.

At Dordt University, our mission is to equip students, alumni, and the broader community to work effectively toward Christ-centered renewal in all aspects of contemporary life.

Dordt is launching its largest capital campaign ever, seeking to plant for a greater harvest, making an unprecedented investment that will impact generations to come. This $90 million dollar campaign will allow Dordt to continue to develop and expand research and innovative programs, to develop and improve spaces for students to live and learn in Christian community, and to increase access to a Dordt education for students seeking to have Christ at the center of their college experience.

Living and learning in Christian community

The integration of curricular and co-curricular programs is critical to the growth of our students as servant leaders and as disciples for Christ.

Much of the educational value in Dordt’s residential campus experience takes place outside of the classroom—on the athletic field, in the concert hall, on stage, in worship.

Most Dordt students and alumni agree that the intentional Christian residential learning community at Dordt was part of what made their college experience exceptional.

This campaign component will renovate and replace aging facilities to meet capacity and community needs of the next generation of Dordt students.

Increasing Access

This critical campaign component seeks to ensure cost will not have to come between students and the life-changing educational experience Dordt provides.

The pressures on private Christian higher education are significant to the point that several institutions have had to close their doors in the past few years. Affordability and accessibility are key considerations for students as they make enrollment decisions.

This component strengthens Dordt’s financial foundation so we can hold firm to our core mission as we operate in a rapidly changing cultural and economic environment.
