Our Capital Priorities

The Campus Master Plan launched in 2000 plays an integral role in the university's Strategic Plan 2015, especially in the wise management of our resources to achieve our mission-focused and academic goals, while enhancing the student experience. The plan includes four construction projects taking place now through academic year 2014-15.


John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center-South Building



Construction of the John Brooks Williams
Natural Sciences Center-South Building

We have added 51,000 square-feet of state-of-the-art learning spaces rich with resources for all of our students and faculty. Those with particular interest in math, computer science, physics and general science  benefit from specialized resources and laboratory spaces. The building also include a multi-use auditorium for the entire university and local community.

There are 90,000 books in the Munday Library.

Scarborough-Phillips Library

A $13-million gift from Bill and Pat Munday has allowed us to nearly double the current facility’s learning and collaboration space, while adding new digital audio and video technology as well as resources that emphasize interdisciplinary learning and group study.

Chapel and Campus Ministry Construction

and Renovation Projects

We refurbished the current Chapel, built the Brother Stephen Walsh, CSC, '62 Campus Ministry Building to house the Campus Ministry offices, and created an all-faiths Mediation Garden. These projects better serve our expanding university faith community, while also generating excitement about opportunities for spiritual growth and faith development.

Alumni Gym Renovation and Expansion

A $1.7-million gift from University Federal Credit Union renamed the Alumni Gym and renovated the facility. We upgraded existing space for Campus Recreation, introduced new student meeting and club space, and rebuilt office space for our Information Technology division. The renovated building, named UFCU Alumni Gym, is part of a broader student-oriented district of campus.
