Enhance Campus

A state-of-the-art education demands 21st-century facilities, including buildings, classrooms, laboratories and technology. Dream 125 gives the Weber State family an opportunity to work together to provide a campus worthy of any student dream.

Weber State is counting on your support of our capital projects — from building classrooms to refurbishing existing facilities to upgrading WSU’s technology infrastructure.

Building Projects

In the past decade, WSU has doubled its number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics graduates in response to student and marketplace requirements.

Knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is in high demand locally, nationally and internationally. To prepare our STEM students for a seamless transition from campus to workplace, we need state-of-the-art science facilities. Thanks to a recent multi-million-dollar budget allocation from the Utah Legislature, we have drawn plans for an exciting, new science lab building. Now, we’re asking for your support to bring that design to life.

Our next construction priority is a new social science building. The current facility, built in 1973, is now outdated and inadequate. We are seeking funds for a new, user-friendly building with the latest design and technology. Our students would thrive in spacious classrooms that accommodate a variety of learning styles, and our award-winning faculty team deserves real offices, not hallway cubbyholes. With your help, we can eventually build this dream facility.

Naming Opportunities

During Dream 125, donors may opt to place the finishing touches on projects in progress, including:

  • The recently expanded Weber State University Davis
  • Wildcat Center for Health Education and Wellness
  • Weber County Sports Complex
  • Wildcat Village
  • Tracy Hall Science Center

By naming spaces within these and other WSU facilities, your name will become a tangible testament of your respect for Weber State University and your gratitude for its role in your life and community.


As Utah’s leading provider of online education, Weber State must keep its cutting edge. It is essential for us to increase the capacity of our computer network bandwidth to accommodate the growing number of students who access our online courses from off campus. 

With more and more students, particularly those in technology-driven disciplines who bring smartphones, tablets and laptops to campus, the need for ongoing technology upgrades becomes progressively critical.

Environmental Sustainability

We may bleed purple, but we think green. As part of our Weber State legacy, we are making every effort to provide a clean, healthy learning environment for future generations of university students. To this end, WSU has pledged to become “carbon neutral,” meaning we aim to remove as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as we put in, by 2050.

Other highlights:

  • Our commitment to sustainability has been recognized in The Princeton Review.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency praised the Dee Events Center for recently reducing its energy use by more than 20 percent.
  • The Arbor Day Foundation named WSU a Tree Campus USA for effective forestry management.

With your support, we can undertake even more Earth-friendly projects.
