A Campaign to Defy the Ordinary is a five-year, $26 million effort to transform the scope of what Defiance College can do for students and society.
On the surface, it is numbers, assigned to projects and priorities. But that doesn’t begin to convey the story of its true aim, or of how crucial you are to the telling.
To defy the ordinary is to think differently. It is to break free from the comfortable but too often stagnating familiarity of convention. To discover new paths to better places. Defy the Ordinary: it is the charge we give to ourselves, to our students, and now to you.
At its core, Defiance prepares students to be of service in ways that are as boundless as the imagination. They road test classroom knowledge through service and research projects at home or abroad. They gain intercultural and international experience that sows the seeds of wisdom. They connect the story of their lives to others. In doing so, they deeply change the way they see the world.
What does such a story have to do with you? By supporting A Campaign to Defy the Ordinary, you will help students begin new and better stories. You will help them become impassioned professionals and community leaders.
You will be the transforming difference.
