The Charger Challenge: The Campaign for the University of New Haven, embodies the University’s mission since its founding: innovation, creativity and social impact, and the promise to educate an enterprising generation of students eager to explore new ways of thinking, doing, and problem-solving.

Our priority is supporting our students – the main beneficiaries of your generosity.

As we charge into our Centennial year in 2020, we will focus on:

  • Creating opportunities for our students through scholarships
  • Supporting our student-athletes’ wellness, performance, and success both inside and outside of the classroom through scholarships and upgraded facilities and services
  • Enhancing our federally ranked Cybersecurity program to meet the current and future workforce demands and to provide a safer tomorrow for everyone
  • Investing in our new School of Health Sciences, which aims to provide an interdisciplinary, interprofessional educational experience focused on public health, ethics, and health technology
