New heights start with a deeper commitment

For more than 180 years, University of the Ozarks has been a shining light calling successive generations to dig deeper, reach further and pursue their full potential.

But it didn’t happen alone.

It’s taken a substantial investment by those who share our vision to create a place where students get the support they need to succeed – and excel.

What we have achieved together is nothing short of amazing.

Science and Lab Facilities

Goal: $13 Million


Science has long been one of our top programs and major strengths. The beautiful new wing will add 21,500 square feet of space to the Smith-Broyles Science Building, providing support for future natural and health science programs, collaboration and create new spaces for students to connect and learn.

Student Scholarships

Goal: $15 Million


Helping students overcome obstacles isn’t just a goal, it’s the reason we exist. From the Annual Scholarship Fund, to Jones Learning Center scholarships, to support for students studying abroad, we believe every student deserves the chance to succeed.

Athletic Facilities

Goal: $11 Million


We welcome alumni and friends who bring their passion to the sidelines and new opportunities to teach the lessons that can’t be taught in class. In the coming years, we will revitalize our facilities, add tennis courts, softball and baseball diamonds, and soccer fields.

Enrichment Endowments

Goal: $4 Million


Extraordinary learning requires faculty and staff who are always at the top of their game. Enrichment endowments make that possible, providing the funds they need to pursue their professional growth, acquire new skills and bring advances to the classroom that prepare our students for tomorrow.

Campus Renovations

Goal: $12 Million


We’ve made many incredible additions to our campus. And now, we must work to protect them, ensuring that they continue to meet the needs of future generations. Building endowments make sure funds are available for ongoing maintenance, equipment replacement or additional enhancements to create facilities that are state-of-the-art.
