Lion Champions Fund :: Welcome from the Director

Welcome from the Director of athletics

Our relational mission to provide a Best in Class experience has not waivered or been deterred throughout the challenges that 2020 presented to our country, our institution, and our student-athletes. Our coaches and administration have remained steadfast in keeping our students through innovative leadership development, intentional team programming, and strategic connection points throughout the year.

Very directly, your support of the Lion Champions Fund is an INVESTMENT with IMPACT. Every Lion Champions Fund donation is invested directly in student-athlete success. Our Thrower Student-Athlete Success Center is not just a study hall, academic advising center, or tutoring spot. The Center – a model within intercollegiate athletics – focuses on developing the total person with academic support, career support, the Responsible Lions Program, the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, and the Lion Leadership Academy for our entire student-athlete population.

Without LCF donations, our opportunities to keep the Thrower Center at a Best in Class level would not be possible. Additionally, our F.A.S.T.E.R. student-athlete nutrition program would not be a reality, as well as expanded recruiting and facility upgrades.

We truly appreciate the philanthropic investment that all LCF donors make and the consideration of student-athlete support from new prospective donors. If you believe in our Best in Class mission and student-athlete impact, please consider a gift to the Lion Champions Fund today.

Best In Class Travel
