We all have our stories of Ashland University. Some are big, monumental stories. Others come from quiet moments, only growing in significance over time.
But the thing about stories is that we’re rarely there for the beginning—or there for the end.
Your story of Ashland University depends on the stories of others. Those who came before us—and their stories—are what set the stage for the opportunities we all experienced while at Ashland.
Since 2019, we've been collecting stories from hundreds of people who've had their lives and futures transformed by “Accent on the Individual” during their time at Ashland. We believe these stories are what truly make up the rich history of Ashland University—even as they simultaneously lay the groundwork for all the lives that will be changed here for generations to come.
Philanthropy at Ashland is about more than fundraising. It’s how we live out our mission every day.
Philanthropy certainly involves financial generosity. But it also involves giving of your time, experience and expertise.
Your involvement, no matter the avenue, allows us to continue to provide exclusive opportunities for our students. Through our continuing dedication to “Accent on the Individual,” our mission is to equip each individual to live a life fueled by their unique purpose. Sharing your experience with current students is a great way to stay connected with Ashland University and provide invaluable advice about life as they grow into the people they were designed to be.
There are many ways you can join us and do your part to give back to the Ashland University community.
At Ashland, we love to hear from our students, alumni, donors and friends. Each of us on the Advancement team wants to serve and connect with you, integrating you into the life of the University.
We look forward to working together for a brighter future for all our students and the Ashland family. Go Eagles!
Since the inception of Ashland University, our donors have given out of love, generosity and in support of the ideals that continue to serve as the foundation and mission of Ashland. Every day, we strive to fulfill the promise our founders made in the beginning: to provide unique opportunities for our students to learn and grow into the people they were designed to be.
However, we can’t provide these life-changing opportunities without your financial support. Your experiences at Ashland were fueled by the generosity of those who came before you. Now we invite you to do the same for the current and future generations of Eagles.
