Mountaineer Athletics Challenge
Part of the Mansfield United campaign, the Mountaineer Athletics Challenge is a fundraising competition between the athletic programs at Mansfield University. Coaches and current student-athletes will put each other to the test for the next 30-days to see who can generate the most support for their program. The individual and the athletic program that generates the most financial support will be crowned the 2021 Mountaineer Athletics Challenge winners!
The support generated through this competition will contribute to a wide array of individual athletic program needs, such as athletic scholarships, equipment and gear upgrades, and training and travel costs.
The formal relationship between Mansfield University and the Mansfield Foundation ended on July 30, 2020. As of today, the parties have been unable to reach agreement on a new memorandum of understanding representing the interests of both the University and Foundation. While the University remains willing to enter in further discussions with the Foundation, at this time the University is engaging in its own fundraising campaign. In light of our continuing needs and your desire to partner with us, please address your gift directly to Mansfield University in support of the University's many identified priorities, including student scholarships. Rest assured that your gift to Mansfield University may only be used for the purpose for which you intend.

In October 2020, the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System (PASSHE) unanimously affirmed the process and next steps for integrating California-Clarion-Edinboro in the West and Bloomsburg-Lock Haven-Mansfield in the Northeast. University integration is intentionally designed to ensure that Mansfield University's name, campus identity, brand, and value proposition continues for generations to come, and that all students benefit from Mansfield's unique experiences and faculty-student interactions that have made the University a special place since 1857.
The goal of university integration is to expand opportunities for Mansfield University students beyond those a single institution can achieve on its own, to make higher education more affordable, and to increase student success. University integrations will build upon on an existing foundation of collaboration and partnership between PASSHE institutions to efficiently expand and deliver undergraduate and graduate programs across the region and beyond. As envisioned, university integration will also focus on enhancing regional and statewide responsiveness to workforce-aligned, nondegree, stackable credentialing programs to meet current and future workforce demands.
When you give to support the Mansfield United campaign, you will provide your gift directly to Mansfield University in support of the University's many identified priorities.
