Tracy_NAICUEverything we do at Shenandoah University focuses on giving our students the knowledge the ethical foundation and the skills to do something special with their lives. From enhancing academic programs and providing scholarships to offering opportunities for travel and study abroad, we believe in helping Shenandoah students realize their full potential.

Dedicated alumni and friends like you make it possible. Through gifts of $5,000 or more each year, members of the President’s Leadership Circle share a commitment to the success of our students and the development of academic programs. Your generosity enables Shenandoah to continue to excel as a dynamic and exceptional institution – a community where all of our students have the opportunity and resources to fulfill their greatest dreams.

I invite you to become a member of the President’s Leadership Circle. In return, you join a giving society whose members receive recognition as well as access to university information and events. With your commitment, you help determine the direction of the university and the region, now and into the future. Your President’s Leadership Circle gift will help Shenandoah turn opportunities into reality.
