The University of South Alabama raised $160.9 million in its five-year Upward & Onward campaign, exceeding its $150 million goal.

More than 23,000 people, businesses and foundations donated to the campaign, which ended Sept. 30. It was the largest campaign in the university’s history.

Since 2015, when the campaign began, USA and USA Health have completed funding for 11 capital building projects, including Hancock Whitney Stadium and the Health Simulation Building.
