Included in the proposed $7.4 million, 26,000 square-foot building will be:
As of September 1, 2006, $5.1 million in federal and private funds have been raised toward a goal of $7.4 million. The Center has been named in honor of Mr. Millard Oakley, a local banker and philanthropist, in recognition of a major gift to the STEM Center project.
Unrestricted gifts to programs, departments, schools, colleges, and the university provide great flexibility. These gifts can be channeled to meet current priorities. However, you may place restrictions and specific guidelines on any gift you make. Once the university accepts the gift, we will honor your wishes about how it is to be used. Current gifts may be for annual purposes (i.e. used as received) or to establish or support an endowment (invested for perpetual income).
There is an ongoing need for unrestricted departmental and school/college support.
