Transform Our Campus
The Pride, Passion, Promise Campaign will “transform our campus” and “secure our future,” building on our strengths as a community and as a leader in science education as it moves the University to the next level of excellence. The Campaign will ensure that we maintain our competitive edge.
Patrick and Margaret DeNaples Center
Community is at the heart of The University of Scranton, a mutual care and concern that manifests itself across the campus in ways seen and unseen. The DeNaples Center builds on our sense of community through its placement at the crossroads of the campus, The Royal Way and The Commons. It opens its doors to our neighbors and the City of Scranton through a grand entrance on Mulberry Street. The DeNaples Center is located behind the site of the Gunster Memorial Student Center, which was razed to create a campus green nearly an acre in size. The four-story, 118,000 sq. ft. building is designed to meet the current and future demands of the campus community.
A Unified Science Center
Student success, faculty research (often with students), and community outreach characterize science education at Scranton. The outstanding work of students and faculty has pushed the 50-year-old Loyola Hall of Science and its 20-year-old upgrades to the limits. A campus planning group developing a compelling concept that invites alumni and friends to imagine a Scranton science center that builds on our historical strengths and fosters new interdisciplinary work among faculty and students. The new center would promote even newer pedagogies and methodologies as it engages all who enter. Scranton needs a center to match the excellence of the science education for which we are known.
Christopher and Margaret Condron Hall
Increased demand and stellar admissions success created the vital need for a new residence hall space, particularly for sophomores. In May of 2007, The University of Scranton’s Board of Trustees approved a project to construct a 386-bed sophomore residence hall on property owned by the University in the 300 block of North Webster Avenue. Dedicated on September 10, 2008, Condron Hall transforms the skyline of Scranton and features a classroom, lounges, kitchen areas and the Office of Residence Life.
Other Capital Improvements
Through the Campaign, the University also renovated The Estate as the new home for admissions, developed the Alperin Financial Center and created the Dionne Campus Green on the site of the Gunster Center.
