University of Southern Indiana

About Us

Who We Are and Why We Need You
The USI Foundation's mission is to attract, acquire, and manage donors' charitable gifts to support and sustain the goals of the University of Southern Indiana.  Put simply, we ensure the University has the resources it needs to elevate excellence.

USI’s founders recognized how an investment in public higher education programs would produce a better-educated citizenry and a more vibrant region and state. Born of need, fueled by community investment, and sustained by alumni success, the University has been a model for student-centered postsecondary education, delivering, as its founders promised, high-quality teaching at the most affordable cost among baccalaureate-granting institutions in Indiana

Just as that investment was needed in 1965, it is needed today to ensure USI continues to foster innovation, engagement and opportunities for individuals and communities in Southern Indiana and beyond.  

Those who support a university make a lasting investment. Universities are among the most ensuring entities in any society, with lives that extend beyond the tenure of those who lead them. The collective power of gifts to the USI Foundation touches virtually every graduate, and build an even stronger USI.  

We invite you to join us. Your gift will help position this dynamic University for greater, bolder and broader service to the region and world.
