The success of student-athletes at Washburn University is directly connected to the support of Washburn alumni and friends. Gifts to athletic programs provide for such things as academic resources to recruit premier student-athletes, renovations to athletic facilities to provide top-of-the-line training equipment and an environment where student-athletes can flourish, and the financial backing for outstanding leadership in coaches.
