Even the biggest wave, a wave of untold strength, can be born from a single drop.

Drop after drop they give way to wave after glorious wave. Inspiration becomes investment, becomes impact.

This is how Jacksonville University is impacting the future of our students, our community: wave after thundering wave, we are leveraging cutting-edge resources to create a practically-minded curriculum driven by the promise of tomorrow. 

From the operating room to the courtroom, and from the boardroom to the locker room, our aspirations are as diverse as they are purposeful. By wearing down the most stubborn obstacles to growth we're setting a new precedent in higher education innovation and development, preparing students today for the in-demand careers of tomorrow.

But despite the depth of our vision and the clarity of our purpose, we cannot do it alone,

together we will take new ground, pioneer a new path…  drop after drop your contributions will compound creating wave after wave of impact. Your investments will inspire and empower future generations because the future is made together.

Seth J. Rostker ’26 with Nursing professors

The support I've received at Jacksonville University has truly blessed me beyond measure. Thanks to the unwavering dedication of the Jacksonville University staff and its generous donors, I am empowered to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. This opportunity allows me to pay forward the same care and compassion I received during my times of need. I am deeply thankful for the countless number of opportunities I've been privileged to be a part of. All made possible by Jacksonville University's full commitment to its Dolphin Community. There is no other university I would want to be at instead of Jacksonville University.
