Fort Wayne, Ind.—With two years remaining in its Momentum campaign, Indiana Tech has set its sights higher and increased the fundraising goal from $19 million to $25 million by June 2012.
President Arthur E. Snyder announced the new goal to about 300 alumni, faculty, staff, students and guests gathered for the university’s 80th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, September 18. The Momentum campaign was publicly announced just two years ago, and Snyder told the crowd that $22 million has been raised thus far.

The new $25 million goal was approved by the Board of Trustees on Friday, September 17.
