Fundraising Projects

Each year, Alice Lloyd College must raise 2.1 million, in addition to endowment earnings, to meet the current operational budget. Along with that amount, $2.7 million is needed to meet the scholarship needs of Appalachian students. Capital projects and programs require additional funds. All of these projects are essential to enabling Alice Lloyd College to continue to provide a high-quality education to students. The projects are transformational and geared toward enhancing student learning by upgrading facilities and improving on-campus living conditions.

Alice Lloyd College accepts no direct federal or state funding, guarantees tuition to students from 108 counties, and, by definition, incurs no debt. As such, your assistance with one or more of these projects would be greatly appreciated.

Below is a list of projects for which support is currently being sought.

Campus Center

Recent campus building evaluations revealed that Geddes Hall, the Grady Nutt Athletic Center, and the swimming pool have reached or exceeded their life expectancies. With growing student enrollment and the need to share resources with The June Buchanan School, we have determined that a larger facility is needed to accommodate athletic programs, graduation services, and other special events. Rather than attempting to renovate these older buildings, our plan is to raze Geddes Hall, the current gymnasium and the swimming pool and construct a new Campus Center.

The Campus Center will provide a 1,500-seat capacity recreation center which will enable us to better serve our students, faculty, staff and community residents. Additional space for a stage will also expand our ability to host nationally recognized speakers and events. Physical education classrooms, a wellness center, faculty and athletic offices, as well as a new and improved child development center for preschool and daycare will also be accommodated. The new building will have geothermal heating and air, along with de-humidification equipment.

The cost of this project is estimated at $17.5 million.

Information Technology Online Portal Upgrade

The current campus database system, Jenzabar EX, was installed in 1999 and has served the College well; however; the online portal was not included due to the expense.  In order to maintain an updated system for current and incoming students, we feel it is time to upgrade our database system to include the Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS).

JICS will help us connect with all our constituents, from applicants to alumni, and keep them engaged and involved in the life of Alice Lloyd College. It’s a powerful resource that offers everyone on campus a single point of access to Web-based self-service, eLearning, communications, and community-building applications. With one login and password, our constituents will have 24x7 access to role-specific content, from administrative records and reports to personal email and calendars, from chat rooms to online exams. JICS delivers a flexible, customizable, and extremely scalable infrastructure— the mission-critical elements of a successful portal.

The cost for this technology upgrade is estimated at $350,000

Andersen Science Center Upgrade, New Chemistry and Kinesiology Labs

The Andersen Science Center was constructed in 1970 and was last renovated in 2003.  Allied Health and Science is our largest academic major and continues to grow.  Our science labs are overcrowded creating a need to expand.  Plans are to remove a greenhouse from the top of the building, relocate it, and use the vacated space for a new chemistry lab.  Additional renovations to the building are needed, as well, which will improve classrooms and enhance education. 

Three years ago, we started the kinesiology major because of the need for more physical therapists in our service area.  The major has grown quicker than expected and requires a larger, dedicated kinesiology lab.  With progress being made in other areas of campus, space for a new kinesiology lab will soon be available in the current Davis Center.

The cost is estimated at $1.0 million.

Campbell Arts Center

The Campbell Arts Center was constructed in 1988. This 25-year-old facility needs to be brought up to a 20-year standard. Renovations to this building include the interior, new flooring, new carpet, new ceilings, lighting, and paint. The seating in the auditorium will be repaired or replaced, and the stage area needs to be renovated to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. A new stage curtain is also needed. The existing HVAC is being replaced with geothermal, and equipment upgraded to correct deficiencies in the building’s make-up air.

The cost is estimated at $2.0 million.

Lilly Memorial Hall

Lilly Memorial Hall was constructed in 1981. In recent years, much work has been done to bring this women’s residence hall up to a 20-year standard. However, the facility has reached maximum capacity. Our plans are to construct a 50-bedroom addition adjacent to the facility, which will enable us to relieve overcrowding and extend our student enrollment. This project will provide apartments with 4-bedroom units to accommodate from eighty to one hundred students, and will include additional toilets, showers, and service space.

The cost is estimated at $4.0 million.
