Ever Better
To make the world ever better, the University of Rochester must be ever better. That simple truth was the foundation of The Meliora Challenge, the University’s comprehensive fundraising campaign that concluded in June 2016.

Now, it’s the philosophy of the Rochester Model.

The Rochester Model seeks to build on the momentum of The Meliora Challenge and further strengthen engagement and partnership within the University community.

Across our campuses and around the world, our students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends are helping us create a better society. Their efforts and impact are shared in their stories.
