Enhancing Campus & Student Life

Enhancing Campus and Student Life: $8.4 million

Marine Science Research Institute – $800,000
Our $10 million facility on the St. Johns River, completed in 2010, has become a true gem at JU, with faculty and students using its rooms and labs to study and preserve Jacksonville’s most significant natural asset—its waterways. Now, to meet urgent needs, a state-of-the-art $300,000 floating research vessel and $250,000 dock are envisioned for the institute.

Land Development – $6.6 million
Nearby JU’s beautiful campus is prime acreage with many great features. A timely investment by JU would land-bank this real estate for future development plans to benefit students.

River House Remodel – $500,000
ASPIRE will convert what is historically known as the President’s residence into a place for students to congregate and relax. With an overlook to the pool, sand volleyball courts and river, the River House will be a place for recreation as students come together.

Phillips Fine Arts Remodel – $500,000
JU’s highly regarded College of Fine Arts excels at producing renowned graduates in Dance, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts. To keep pace with program and student needs, its Phillips Fine Arts Building must undergo extensive remodeling and restructuring. Performance and gallery spaces will be upgraded to adhere to long-term program goals and properly showcase student talent.​
