Radford Athletics is poised to make the next 10 years the most productive and exciting period in Highlander sports history. The Athletic Department’s strategic plan includes improving the student-athlete experience through hard work, integrity, passion, focus and accountability. Campaign efforts will provide financial support to help match our goals and will provide student-athletes with the proper resources to compete at the highest level.
A continued emphasis on athletic scholarship support will increase our ability to attract, recruit and retain student-athletes who are prepared to succeed academically and graduate. Support of the Highlander Club allows flexibility to fund immediate needs of each athletic team and provides our students with the best collegiate experience in the classroom and in competition.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Scholarship endowments help Radford meet its annual scholarship budget and support each student-athlete’s goal of a earning a degree.
Highlander Club contributions aid in establishing a competitive advantage in recruiting, increase sports-specific investments to help meet future funding needs of each team and enhance each student-athlete’s overall college experience by providing scholarships, academic support, athletic training and strength and conditioning programs.
