The University of Southern Indiana broke ground in summer 2014 on the new $5.75 million Griffin Center, which will meet the need for more meeting and conference space on campus. The naming of the 12,700 square-foot building was announced to honor the Robert E. Griffin family. Their leadership gift of $5 million to Campaign USI: Elevating Excellence made the building possible. Funding of the center is one of several goals of the $50 million campaign.
An additional $750,000 from the University’s Parking and Transportation Reserve will be used to build an access road, to be known as Griffin Way, and a parking lot for the facility.
The Griffin Center is scheduled to open in late 2015. (complete story)
