At his inauguration in September 2016, University President Ken Gormley paid tribute to Duquesne's humble beginnings. Endowed with very few assets but a surplus of faith and perseverance, and aided by a handful of generous benefactors, our founders and their successors built one of the nation's top Catholic universities. As it has grown and evolved, Duquesne has remained focused on its distinctive Spiritan mission and values. Upholding a rich tradition of educational excellence-infused with high moral and spiritual standards-Duquesne continues to transform lives every day.
Carrying on the legacy of our founders, the members of the Duquesne Society both sustain our heritage and advance our ambitious vision-making a Spiritan education for the mind, heart and spirit better and more affordable for all students, especially those with the greatest financial need. They enhance technology, academic programs, facilities, and student services across our campus.
Since 1976, the Duquesne Society has recognized the leaders among our alumni and friends who make charitable gifts totaling $1,000 or more in a given calendar year. Members of the Duquesne Society share a special bond, a deep appreciation for Duquesne's past, and a commitment to the University's present and future. Your leadership gift changes Duquesne-and its students' lives.
