The renovation of the historic Wittenberg Fieldhouse includes classrooms and offices for coaching and athletic administration. There is a new social space for alumni gatherings and fundraising events.
The renovation provides space for the creation of new academic programs including Exercise Science, Sports Management, and a Masters in Coaching. The facilities create state of the art indoor practice and training facilities, strength and conditioning space and updated public access areas.
The University has signed an “affinity agreement” with Mercy Health Systems to partner with multiple student and community-based health and wellness initiatives. Sports Medicine and Athletic Training classrooms were expanded or added to accommodate these programs.
The $42 million project is eligible for both Federal and State Historic Tax Credits providing $3.8 million and $5 million of equity to the project respectively. The project was completed in Fall 2019.
Total Project Cost: $42,000,000
