The University of New Haven is outpacing expectations on a major fundraising campaign.

The university surpassed the $100 million “Charger Challenge” almost a year in advance of the school’s centennial in 2020.

The centerpiece of the campaign is the university’s new Bergami Center for Science Technology and Innovation.
