MTSU Announces Largest Captial Campaign

Middle Tennessee State University’s yearlong Centennial celebration took a bold step forward Friday when University officials announced the largest fundraising campaign in MTSU’s history. Nearly $54 million already has been committed toward the campaign’s $80 million goal. Raised over the past three years during the “quiet phase,” the $54 million alone would constitute a successful effort at many comprehensive universities. Highlighting the campaign’s public launch was the announcement of a $10 million gift—the largest outright gift in the school’s history—from alumnus and entrepreneur Andrew Woodfin “Woody” Miller of Nashville. Miller, who provided the six-figure final boost for a fundraising challenge for the University Honors College a decade ago, made a point of telling MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee then that he planned to make an even larger donation to MTSU. “This gift is going to go a long way in helping this University continue to do the incredible job it has done for 100 years, and now, for the new century, it positions us in a very significant way to continue to make the kind of progress that we have mapped out for the University’s second century,” McPhee said. According to McPhee, the $80 million capital campaign will ensure the University’s place among the nation’s top comprehensive universities, further raise its visibility nationally and internationally, and maintain MTSU’s legacy as a center of higher-education excellence for the future.
