Advancing our plan: Enhancing the Commons

The university community has realized an immense vision in the Commons. Together, we have created a vibrant, inviting, enriching environment in which our students, researchers, and all members of the community can thrive.

With the generous support of our community, we have created the spaces and are providing the tools and promoting interdisciplinary, collaborative relationships to advance knowledge and understanding for our region and the world.

Enthusiasm for this project has been extraordinary from the beginning. With the decisive support of the student body and its commitment to funding one third of the construction costs. Now, we turn to our friends and partners in the community to match the students’ enthusiasm and support to enhance the many transformative spaces created in the Commons.
