As Rockford University’s 18th president, it is my privilege to continue working toward the successful completion of each element set forth in the Rock Solid & Ready Campaign. I was fortunate in my previous role as Vice President for Enrollment Management to serve alongside President Emeritus Robert L. Head while the vision for this important work took shape. At its conclusion, our campaign will elevate the University’s ability to attract and support students who expect and deserve an individualized experience that affords them a distinct advantage over their peers.
It is vital for Rockford University to bolster our resources so that we are able to improve our capacity to compete through the creation of modern facilities, to create more expansive opportunities that enhance the student experience, and to commit to providing for the current and growing needs of this remarkable institution.
Success begets success. Now is the time for Rockford University to build on its strengths and continue moving forward with confidence. I invite you to join me as a formative partner in the completion of this campaign. We are rock solid, we are ready, and we are grateful for your support.

As President Emeritus of Rockford University, I am ever mindful of my guardian-duty to protect our institution's rich legacy, while advancing its future.
We live that legacy through the accomplishments of our alumni, whose lives are well chronicled and have been enriched through their experience as students. To them we are grateful.
However, it is the present and the future that most occupy my mind. I hold dear my responsibility to make clear a path for our current students to follow their dreams. And, it is you who can help make those dreams a reality.
We have created a solid foundation on which to build. Our enrollments are growing in a time where others' are not. Our support, both emotional and financial, is approaching a zenith.
Your generosity, delivered now to this campaign, will help Rockford University remain vital and relevant as a force in higher education. I humbly seek your support and gratefully acknowledge your commitment.
Robert L. Head, Ph.D.
