Momentum, Growth, Commitment

Athletics are essential to the Mount’s mission to develop young people who live lives of significance in service to God and others. Our student-athletes are courageous, passionate, focused and resilient—precisely the qualities we seek to develop among all our students. Our student-athletes forge lifelong skills of tenacity and teamwork that prepare them to enter the workforce and the world ready to live boldly and to make a difference.

The tradition of Mount Athletics brings us together, and our culture sets us apart. Investing in our student-athletes is an important area of focus for the University’s Our Mission, Our Moment, Our Mount campaign.

Fundraising Priorities

Your gift directly impacts our athletics programs in many ways. You can help enhance our facilities, student-athlete nutrition, training gear and equipment, travel and accommodations, summer school, recruiting budgets, and much more.

Competitive Excellence

The Mount recruits student-athletes who accept nothing less than excellence in athletics, academics and a larger purpose. Our programs’ excellence and reputation are key drivers of student recruitment more broadly, attracting talented student-athletes who want to be part of a spirited, vibrant campus community. The Mount’s student-athletes have a GPA higher than the campus average and retain and graduate at levels above non-athletes.

As we write the next chapter of Mount Athletics in the MAAC, a highly competitive Division I conference, we must create facilities that match and further the excellence of our programs. Doing so will provide enhanced performances and opportunities for the Mount’s Division I athletics program, expand intramural and recreational programs for all students, and increase our ability to recruit tomorrow’s most talented student-athletes.

A critical aspect of the Mount’s strategic plan is to grow enrollment through athletics. As the number of Mount student-athletes continues to grow, it is imperative to provide facilities that can accommodate our programs and be a difference maker in the recruiting process.
