New and upgraded classrooms, laboratories and other facilities—including development of the College’s new South Campus, across Manhattan College Parkway from our iconic main site—will equip students in all disciplines with the academic resources needed to compete in a technology-driven workplace.
When completed, this 30,000-square-foot facility will feature collaborative spaces for students and faculty along with 14 research labs in biology, chemical engineering, civil engineering, general chemistry, general physics, mechanical engineering and microbiology. (Critical upgrades also are being made to the Leo Engineering Building and the Research and Learning Center.)
Renovate Buildings Across All Disciplines
The College must renovate the century-old buildings surrounding the Quadrangle, including De La Salle and Miguel Halls, Smith Auditorium, and aging facilities such as Hayden.
Upgrades already have strengthened the O’Malley School of Business. Along with a new Experiential Learning Center, “Invest in the Vision” will provide vital support for refurbishing student and faculty spaces on De La Salle Hall’s third floor.
Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Education and Health
“Invest in the Vision” will enable these academic units to provide classrooms and labs with resources such as High-Definition Projectors, Lecture-Capture Technology, Podium Computers including Touch Screens, Three-D Printing, Video Conferencing, Virtual Reality Applications, and more.
Over the past quarter-century, our College has made a successful transition from a primarily commuter to an overwhelmingly residential institution. Campus life has grown stronger as a result. “Invest in the Vision” will help to enhance residence life, modernize facilities, and strengthen student activities.
Cultivating the Arts
Cramped former classrooms on the fifth floor of Thomas Hall serve as an ad hoc home to the performing arts at Manhattan. “Invest in the Vision” will support the conversion of Smith Auditorium into a “black-box” theater—a performing arts venue at the heart of the campus with exhibition spaces for the fine arts.
Points of Pride
The distinguished heritage and continuing excellence of Jasper athletics strengthens the Manhattan College community. “Invest in the Vision” includes renovations of the historic Draddy Gymnasium and Gaelic Park, as well as new and improved spaces for lockers, coaches’ offices, strength and conditioning and sports medicine.
