As Webb looks to celebrate its first 100 years while preparing for the future, we know we must accomplish three important goals as part of a Centennial Campaign. 第一个, we must make our values and mission permanent by endowing Webb for the decades of growth and opportunity that lie ahead. 第二个, we must continue to transform our campus to meet the evolving needs of our students, 包括教室, 实验室, 宿舍和教师之家. 和第三, we must continue to provide leadership support to our current students and faculty as they carry out their important work on campus today. All of these goals are central to our Centennial Campaign, which launched its public phase on Oct. 23, 2021.
