The Bays: A Welcome Home

The generous $2 million gift from Chancellor Debra Deane Little and her spouse, Robert Little, gave us the confidence to take on this large-scale restoration project at the outset of a pandemic in the summer of 2020.

Thanks to many, and especially our Director of Facilities, Ian Wagschal, the project came in on time and under budget at a total cost of $4.5 million. Good fiscal management meant the university was able to contribute almost $1.3 million, and the project has enjoyed the support of other donors, too.

And now, we ask for your support to help us raise the remaining $600,000 required to meet this project’s fundraising goal.
