Show your support and appreciation

As part of the “Achieve More. Together” campaign and in honor of Brother James’ leadership, our goal is to raise at least $5 million towards a new Student Center. To date, over $4 million has been raised. As a man who has always placed students at the core of every aspect and decision of the University, it is only fitting that the Student Center – a hub for student life and growth – carry Brother James Gaffney's name. If you would like to support this initiative, visit our Give Now page or contact University Advancement at (815) 836-5244.
