Act of Determination 2 -- Creating a $50 Million Development Plan for the Arts District

Action Steps:
  • By Fall 2014 the Dean’s Office, in consultation with the Board of Advocates, Directors of Development in Arts & Sciences, and University Development, will identify donors who collectively will contribute at least one-half of the funding for the Arts District, resulting in named auditoriums, performance halls, museums, classrooms, laboratories, departments, and programs.
  • By Spring 2015 the Dean’s Office, in consultation with the Board of Advocates, Directors of Development in Arts & Sciences, and University Development, will identify other donors for gifts to complete the project.
  • Following the implementation of the previous two steps, a public campaign to complete the fundraising activity will be launched by Summer 2015; this will include consultation with Arts & Sciences Marketing and Communications.
