29 OLYMPIANS | 41 MVC TEAM TITLES | 17 NCAA CHAMPIONS
Known and respected on the national stage, our student-athletes represent SIU in front of the entire world. We’ve won hundreds of individual championships and produced more than 200 All-Americans, winning dozens of conference and national titles.
With a season that spans nearly the entire calendar, our teams compete at the highest level year-round. Diverse and driven, our student-athletes reflect the mindset of Saluki Athletics and the entire university. To help our program grow and thrive, we must depend on passionate investors who understand the need for continuous advancement to recruit and develop student-athletes who compete for championships.
We need private support to fund initiatives that contribute to the program’s success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
WHERE YOU CAN MAKE AN IMPACT
SCHOLARSHIPS. Our program is dedicated to bringing the best student-athletes to SIU. Through scholarships, we build a community of diverse, successful Salukis who act as ambassadors for the university. Our student-athletes are role models in the community and the classroom.
OPERATIONS. From recruiting to training to competition and beyond, there are countless moving pieces underpinning the smooth and effective operation of our program. Every link in the complex operational chain, including support staff and coaching staff for our student-athletes, is important to overall success.
FACILITIES. We are blessed with many high-level, state-of-the-art facilities, but the need to upgrade is always on the horizon. Maintaining our existing facilities and preparing for the future requires regular investment.
