The Achieve: A New Dream, A New Era
has four priorities:(Click icons for details.) PRIORITY I: SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMPLEX
PRIORITY II: INCREASE SCHOLARSHIPS
In 1961, a determined group of visionaries achieved the dream of a permanent home for Utica College on a parcel of farmland on the outskirts of Utica. Soon thereafter, the campus sprouted new academic buildings that offered a teaching and learning environment far superior to the makeshift quarters of the College’s original home on Oneida Square.
The dreams of that former era are now half century-old facilities. The classrooms, research and clinical laboratories, and faculty offices that for generations served as centers for learning, discovery, and interaction are no longer meeting the needs of today’s students and faculty.
Achieve: A New Dream, A New Era answers this call for new state-of-the-art facilities with a new science and technology complex that will transform the teaching and learning environment at Utica College - an ambitious three-phase initiative that will play a critical role in providing students with the skills and knowledge they will need to achieve success in the careers of tomorrow.

PRIORITY III: ENHANCE TEACHING AND LEARNING
Utica College’s tradition of providing opportunity to a diverse population of students regardless of economic need is as old as the institution itself. The College was founded to serve returning veterans of World War II, many of whom were able to afford an education only because of
the GI Bill. In the absence of comparable tuition support from the government, the College must rely principally upon private donors to maintain its long-held commitment to making a college education affordable to every student deserving of the opportunity.
Utica College is an institution with many needs, but none greater or more immediate than its need for privately supported need-based and merit scholarships. Increasing the College’s scholarship endowment is a critical priority, especially in the face of continually declining state and federal student aid. By increasing scholarship support, the College hopes to provide opportunities to academically promising students and factor financial need out of their decision to attend Utica College. The ability to do so depends heavily on gifts from donors.
