Campaign Progress


As a founding member of the Big Ten Conference, Northwestern chose to compete in athletics at the highest level.

This proved an ambitious goal for the smallest, and the only private, school in the Big Ten. Yet, in the same way that the University has achieved distinction in education and research, we challenge ourselves to excel in Division I sports while never losing sight of creating a world class experience for our student-athletes.

Thank you to those that have already committed to the Campaign for Athletics. With your support, we can provide a world class experience for all Wildcats student-athletes.
