Concordia University administration and the athletics department have announced plans for an aggressive fundraising campaign aimed at constructing an Athletic Performance Center on campus.
The university’s plans call for a $1.5 million construction project with various naming opportunities to fund the project. University administration has indicated a pledge to proceed with the project based on early fundraising success.
“Due to the growing number of athletic programs on campus as well as the competitive landscape within Division II, Concordia University has made it a priority to provide our ever-increasing population of student-athletes with a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose training facility that rivals any in our conference,” Director of Athletics Mark McKenzie said.
Located to the west of the current weight room with entry off of Marshall Avenue, the facility will contain a 5,320 square foot weight room with new equipment, a considerable upgrade from the under 3,000 square foot weight room in the current location.
