History of the Scott Campaign

heyscott

In the fall of 2014, Vanguard University embarked on a journey built on university health with an eye toward the future. It started with a vision for the school to expand in instruction and capacity. University leadership began by looking at the needs of the students, faculty, staff, the community, and the university as a whole to identify the potential opportunities to expand. After looking at the various needs, it was evident that expanding the Scott Academic Center would be the most practical investment.

The campaign called Through These Doors transformed the Scott Academic Center thanks to the more than $7 million in donations from alumni, faculty, staff, parents and the greater community. During this time, also it was announced that everyone who donated $100 or more would have their name placed on the donor recognition wall. This was done in order to allow young alumni, and other community partners to recognize their importance in this project. The Scott building project was well-conceived, appropriately timed, and absolutely necessary to the future of Vanguard University. The new Academic Center now includes ten new classrooms, expanded space for the Veterans Resource Center, Global Center for Women and Justice, and the nursing program, as well as a new cafe and gathering space. Along with all of this, the Scott Center received complete exterior facelift, including a tower element to give the building landmark significance.

The Scott Academic Center celebrated its grand opening on Saturday, October 3, 2015. It has been transformed into a space that enhances and enriches the students experience at Vanguard University. In the short amount of time that it has been complete, we have already seen it quickly become a place of gathering for students, faculty, and staff. Between Samson’s cafe and plenty of outdoor seating and tables, it has become a central hub on campus. God’s faithfulness was evident throughout this entire process and the way He has blessed this university. Vanguard is so thankful for the generosity and support from our strong alumni family, faculty and staff as well as the community that has continued to pour into Vanguard in a variety of ways. The Through These Doors campaign is now part of Vanguard’s story and we are thankful that each one of you are a part of it, with great anticipation of what is to come.
