What is “capital” and how can it support Campbellsville University?
“Capital,” simply defined, may be described as those funds that are applied toward “brick and mortar” projects-or in other words-projects that impact an institution's grounds and facilities. The positive influence stately campus facilities and well-groomed grounds can have on an institution is vital. Many marketing and physical plant experts contend that as much as 70% of a university's image is based on how its facilities and grounds present themselves to campus guests.
Although Campbellsville University has made significant improvements with its facilities as well as with its grounds during the past decade, the University must go to that “next level” of facility and grounds excellence. As enrollment continues to grow on our main and extended campuses, so do the demands on current facilities. And along with those rising enrollments, a desire for future facilities must be realized as well.
Our policy has always been, and will always be, to put the students first in everything we do. We want our students to benefit from contemporary facilities. Some of our newest facilities include the Ransdell Chapel, the School of Nursing, the E. Bruce Heilman Student Center Complex, and the School of Education Building that will be opening. We seek to make Campbellsville University the Christian university of choice. Your prayerful and financial support of the University's capital projects can make an indelible mark on the life of this private, comprehensive university.
