Clark College unveils its largest comprehensive campaign in history


This week, Clark College President Robert K. Knight and Jan Oliva, Ensuring a Bright Future Campaign chair, made one of the most significant announcements in Clark College’s 80 year history: the launch of its largest comprehensive campaign. The college has raised almost $17 million toward a $20 million goal for a variety of areas including programs, scholarships and facilities.

“The areas of focus within this campaign are in tandem with the priorities of the community for workforce development,” says Lisa Gilbert, president and CEO of Clark College Foundation. “We will be poised to serve our community with education and training only through the continued support and philanthropy of the region’s community members.”

Funds raised during the campaign-which is set to conclude June 2014-are aimed at enhancing scholarships, health care programs, science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, and facilities such as the Oliva Early Learning Center, Firstenburg Family Dental Hygiene Education and Care Center and other buildings on campus.
