Transforming students’ lives
From its earliest beginnings as a private business college through its development as a comprehensive University, Rider has always adapted to meet the needs of today’s students while addressing the demands of tomorrow’s workforce. This ability to adhere to its vision while evolving to consider modern challenges and opportunities has allowed the University to grow with its students.
The Transforming Students - Transforming Lives campaign will ensure that Rider can continue to consistently thrive as a home for students seeking a holistic and engaging experience that goes beyond the classroom to encompass real-world learning. It is this combination that transforms our students, allowing them to shape their talents and assisting them as they transition into fulfilling careers.
$85.7M raised so far
Leading benefactors have strengthened our campaign’s progress by making gifts of $1M or more. Thanks to their generosity and that of others, the University has already raised more than $85.7M. We are almost there and would appreciate your help as we seek to attain our campaign goals.
"Your support is crucial to Rider’s continuing success. Every gift, large and small, helps propel us toward our goal, widening the circle of opportunities for our students, enhancing facilities and strengthening our already strong curricula of programs.
In a changing world, we have deepened our commitment to preparing students for future success. Your support is key. An investment now will extend opportunity to students, shaping their future progress and assisting them in obtaining a brighter outcome. Combined with others, the impact of your contribution will be great."
