Funding Capital Projects

Our reputation, is your reputation. It is only through your generosity, your selflessness, your love for Drake, that we have been able to propel the University to a position of significant strength in the landscape of higher education.

Investment in our buildings, facilities and technology is a crucial ingredient in being one of the best universities in America.

The buildings, facilities, technology and learning resources we provide stretch the bounds of the imagination and stir within our community a constant craving for greatness. distinctlyDrake calls for a substantial investment in campus facilities, which will address:

New School of Education Building
Drake’s programs in education have long been recognized for their excellence. This project will take that outstanding reputation to even greater heights by providing students with the technology, resources and physical learning environments that will enable them to distinguish themselves as educators and administrators.

New and Renovated Science Facilities
The spirit of inquiry and creativity at Drake is as prominent in the sciences as it is anywhere else across our campus. That spirit will be fostered by the construction of two new science buildings and the renovation of three existing buildings – empowering students and faculty in our science programs to achieve greatness and perpetuate Drake’s outstanding academic reputation.

Renovation and Addition to Cowles Library
Cowles Library is the academic heart of the Drake campus, and must be enhanced to a level one would expect to find at one of America’s best universities. With expanded learning and leisure spaces, as well as the incorporation of state-of-the-art technology, students and faculty will have every resource they need to make the most of their academic pursuits.

Expansion and Renovation of Cartwright Hall
Drake has a long and proud history of providing an exceptional law school experience. By renovating classrooms, expanding meeting spaces and upgrading technology, we will position future generations of law students and faculty to achieve even greater levels of success and enhance the Law School’s reputation across the country.

Renovation of Drake Fieldhouse
The Drake Fieldhouse has been a connecting place for generations of students as they’ve competed on the field, on the court and in the classroom. The renovation of this historic facility will ensure that Drake students have access to world-class training and practice facilities, while its expansion will add a new leadership lab, classrooms and space for academic enrichment.
