Naming Opportunities

The Campaign for Every Laurentian is a unique time for donors to consider mapping their own Laurentian legacy.

Various naming opportunities that include scholarships, professorships, spaces and programs are available during The Campaign for Every Laurentian.  The list below of naming opportunities is updated regularly, including spaces that have been named and new opportunities being shared.

For more information about these naming opportunities, please email campaign@stlawu.edu.  

Endowment Opportunities

  • Endow a Professorship – $2.5 million minimum each

    Endowed professorships are crucial for bringing the best scholars, researchers, and innovators to St. Lawrence. An endowed professorship exists in perpetuity at St. Lawrence, supporting salaries and providing an annual research stipend to stimulate new teaching and learning opportunities. Our goal is to raise the number of endowed professorships from 33 to 50 during the Campaign.

  • Endow a Head Coach or Program Director – $1.5 million minimum each

    Today, more than 90 percent of our students participated in high school athletics, and one-third of them play on a varsity team. By endowing coaching positions, you recognize the importance of leadership on and off the field. Your support enhances our competitive advantage, elevates our programs’ reputations, and provides an educational environment that embraces a campus-wide approach to wellness. Program director positions outside of athletics can also be endowed.  A recent example includes the endowing of the director of Health and Counseling Services position.

  • Endow a Scholarship – $100,000 minimum each (unrestricted scholarship)/$150,000 minimum each (restricted scholarship)

    To attract promising academic talent, we must stay competitive with our financial aid. We remain committed to providing access to all students, regardless of their economic status. Our goal is to raise at least $50 million in endowed scholarships during the Campaign.

  • Endow an Experiential Learning Fund - $100,000 - $150,000 minimum each

    From internships and student-faculty research, to travel abroad and community service, endowed funds can be established to support experiential learning.  Our goal is to raise at least $10 million toward experiential learning during the Campaign.
