Louisiana Tech University

A MESSAGE FROM THE A.D.

A.D. One of the best indications of an elite organization can be found in the decisions it makes on behalf of its constituents - past, present and future.

These organizations act based on the strength of their vision and the confidence they have in their leadership to advance the organization forward. These elite organizations also continuously pursue excellence regardless of the limitations of today or the uncertainty of tomorrow.

Louisiana Tech University is just such an organization and is set to embark on an unprecedented campaign that will position it among the elite of intercollegiate athletics.

Quest for Excellence - Campaign for Louisiana Tech Athletics has been created to generate the resources and facilities necessary to achieve our mission of recruiting, educating, developing and graduating young people into some of our nation's most productive student-athletes, alumni and citizens. The facilities we seek through this campaign will allow our athletics program to compete nationally and are sure to become a source of pride for our student body, alumni community and dedicated fans. It will also clearly demonstrate our commitment to being a nationally-respected NCAA Division I program within a world-class research institution.

The facilities that will be born from Quest for Excellence - Campaign for Louisiana Tech Athletics will have a positive impact on every men's and women's athletic team in the department, allowing each to achieve their academic and athletic performance goals. Through reaching our campaign goal, we seek to bring unprecedented success and pride to the University, enhancing the image of the athletic program and creating a championship environment in which our student athletes can compete and learn.

The support from the friends and fans of Louisiana Tech is essential to building a foundation for Quest for Excellence - Campaign for Louisiana Tech Athletics, the athletic program and a successful future for your Bulldogs and Lady Techsters.

Please consider participating in this exciting and unprecedented campaign with a gift that will allow us to build a bright future for your University and its athletic program.
