CEMS Next 100 Campaign: Advancing Knowledge, Enriching Lives

Launched on July 1, 2014, the CEMS Next 100 Campaign aimed to secure $30 million in new funding to invest in the department’s chief asset: its people. The extraordinary generosity of CEMS alumni and friends has made it possible to reach this historic milestone. Yet this is not our destination.

Together, we will elevate our capacity to serve our faculty and students, and the people of Minnesota and the world. As part of the broader University of Minnesota campaign, Driven., the Next 100 Campaign will provide the department with a margin of excellence, helping CEMS to fulfill its mission of scholarship and discovery, and secure its century-long legacy of excellence.

We invite our alumni and friends to join us as we head towards the completion of the Next 100 Campaign on June 30, 2021 by making a gift to any of the following four departmental priority categories:

Celebrating our Partners

All gifts and pledges documented prior to June 30, 2021 will count towards the CEMS Next 100 Campaign goal, even if the pledge payments extend beyond 2021. CEMS is proud to recognize donors whose gifts (both outright and future, including estate commitments) total $100,000 or more on the Amundson Hall benefactor wall, and will be included in the University of Minnesota’s Driven. campaign as well.
