Rose-Hulman lands $15M gift for new $29M academic building

July 23, 2018

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has received a $15 million lead gift to support construction of a new academic building.

The Indiana college announced Monday that the money is from an anonymous donor. The $29 million building in Terre Haute will open for the 2021-22 school year and will include workspaces, design studios, flexible classrooms and chemistry laboratories.

A groundbreaking ceremony is planned during the school's homecoming Oct. 6 for the 60,000-square-foot, three-story building on the east side of the 1,300-acre campus.

The building's plans call for a central atrium and lots of interior and exterior glass. Rose-Hulman President Jim Conwell said the design "reflects our focus on active engagement in learning within a collaborative, mentoring environment."

Rose-Hulman has about 2,200 undergraduate students and nearly 100 graduate students, involved primarily in engineering, mathematics and science.
