Building on Excellence Campaign

In January 2007, university President Steve Morgan announced that ULV had raised more than $33 million toward its five-year Building on Excellence Campaign, which runs from July 1, 2003 to June 30, 2008.


The goals of the advancement initiative include:

  • Enhance the campus by updating facilities and infrastructure
  • Increase and encourage research
  • Provide vital financial assistance to those seeking to further their education
  • Strengthen ULV's intercollegiate athletic program
  • Expand the university's leadership and legacy in the field of education
  • Sustain the growth and development of the ULV College of Law

Part of the funds secured during the campaign's initial two years includes the $17.8 million raised as part of the $21 million Campus Center Project.


The Campus Center Project features construction of the Sara & Michael Abraham Campus Center (student union building offering classrooms, office space, cafe, mail room and conference rooms), creation of the Frank & Nadine Johnson Family Plaza, and renovation of the Sports Science & Athletics Pavilion (formerly known as the "Super Tents").


District VII of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) honored President Morgan with its Chief Executive Officer Leadership Award in 2006 for his efforts in this campaign.
