Our Red & Black Gala is the single largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds going to fund our athletic programs, helping to enhance the student-athlete experience at SIUE. These student-athletes have proven to be one of the top programs in the nation, ranking eighth among all public NCAA Division I institutions for graduation rates this past year, including being the top program among public higher education institutions in Illinois.
