Rock Solid and Ready: the Campaign for Rockford University is nearly complete. With only months to go, you can help us make a dash for the checkered flag to provide a total of $17.3 million in capital and programmatic advancements that help make our students’ experience exceptional.

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, we will host our annual gala, “Ready. Set. Go! A Race to the Finish.”

So, mark the date, gather up your favorite racing team, and take us into victory lane. #RURaceToFinish
