Imagine: The Campaign for Vanguard University

Through the Imagine campaign, Vanguard is preparing for our next 100 years by ensuring generations of students have places and resources needed for academic, relational, spiritual and physical growth. Phase One of the campaign focused on two main areas: building the new Waugh Student Center and helping secure our future as a Christian university by strengthening our endowment.

Milestone Two, launching fall 2021, will also focus on strengthening our endowment and building a brand-new athletics and academic facility.

Vision Message From our President

Throughout Vanguard’s nearly 100 years, we’ve had a singular focus on preparing women and men to fulfill God’s call upon their lives. As a university, we build into people’s lives, and the Imagine campaign is a way to invest in our students today and for years to come.

The Waugh Student Center: Study, Relax and Belong

The Waugh Student Center is a forum for creating and sharing God stories, encouraging one another, exploring their career and academic goals and expanding their faith. Also an extension of the classroom, the new student center supports a relational and unfettered approach to the learning environment of Vanguard. Alumni visiting campus will be welcomed home at the student center, where they can engage with current students, reconnect with an influential professor or reunite with a former classmate.

Whether preparing a presentation with a classmate, researching a term paper while dining al fresco, meeting for coffee with a spiritual leader, or shooting hoops and discussing their dreams with a professor, the student center’s intentionally communal design offers opportunities for students to engage in community and find their true calling.

The student center will exist as a place where all students – undergraduate and graduate, residential and commuter – will experience a sense of belonging.
