The Miami University Campaign for Love and Honor has announced a record total of $535,610,796 from contributions of more than 105,000 donors.

According to a Miami University press release, the campaign, considered the most lucrative in Miami University history, surpassed its goal of $500 million in July. President David Hodge said is urging those in the Miami community to appreciate the donors who made the campaign possible, as their generosity is paving the way for Miami's success into the future.

"It is natural to focus on the numbers, but the real impact of the campaign is what we are doing and what we will be able to do thanks to the forward-looking generosity of our donors," Hodge said in the press release. "The greatest significance of what we have accomplished is only beginning to be counted-in generations of student dreams realized, lives empowered, innovation unleashed and in so many promising 'Days to Be.'"

Since its launch in 2002, the campaign has funded the advancements of several academic programs on campus, including those in the Armstrong Interactive Media Studies program, Howe Writing Center and Scripps Gerontology Center. In addition, 33 faculty members have earned professorship and 586 scholarship endowments have been instated.
