Letter from the President

Dear Friend,

Allow me to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation on behalf of the entire Ƶ community for your commitment to ensuring that the model of our Jesuit, Catholic education continues to be accessible to the world. Your generosity and leadership in philanthropy are essential for our University to live out our mission of forming men and women for others. I am immensely grateful for your membership in The President’s Circle and the amazing things you have made possible and are helping to create for the campus community and beyond. Thank you.

Every gift from alumni, parents, and friends strengthens our University’s foundation, but President’s Circle donors propel our University to greater heights, driving innovative ideas and solutions and transformative experiences. Your membership helps Ƶ remain well prepared to embrace any new opportunities or challenges that arise, ensuring we maintain the highest academic standards and learning resources for our students, faculty, and administration.

Your contributions are at the root of Ƶ’s exceptional growth. The overwhelming number of applicants we received for the class of 2027—the largest in University history— is just one indicator of our growing reputation as an outstanding national, professional doctorate University. This incoming class is the most selective, as well as the most geographically represented and culturally diverse. With the highest GPA and SAT scores in our history, we are in the top percentage of low admittance rates amongst our Jesuit peer institutions. We are overjoyed to welcome these new students to Stag Country.

Ongoing support from President’s Circle members like you has also contributed greatly to the growth in financial aid and academic opportunities available to our students. This fall, we have welcomed our first cohort of students to Ƶ Bellarmine—one of our newest academic initiatives which offers a two-year associate’s degree for students of Bridgeport and surrounding communities; our Company Scholars from the Jesuit and Cristo Rey network of Jesuit high schools; and scores of others who need our support. Our University also continues to experience increased recognition for student research, NASA grants, Fulbright scholarships, faculty research, and pedagogical innovation—all thanks to your generosity which helps to shape so many areas of Ƶ.

Your leadership support will have a long-lasting and far-reaching effect on Ƶ students and the greater community. Consistently over the past several years, at least 98% of Ƶ graduates secured full-time professional employment, admission to some of the best graduate degree programs in the world, or volunteer work of their choice within six months following Commencement. Last year, the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce ranked 4,500 colleges in the country based on the return on the investment after graduation, and Ƶ impressively placed in the top 1% in the nation. Your commitment elevates our University and inspires our students to pursue meaningful, world-altering careers and opportunities.

A Ƶ education is a gift made possible because of you. I invite you to return as often as possible, attend one of our numerous events, and remain in touch with members of our Advancement team who are eager to share our progress throughout the year.

Thank you, God bless, and go Stags!

Mark R. Nemec, PhD
