Meredith Hall Renovation

Designed by world-renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Meredith opened in 1965 and received international attention. With its signature atrium, which is distinct among Mies’ buildings, Meredith Hall continues to capture the interest and imagination of architects, students, faculty, and community members. 

 

Meredith revitalization is currently Drake’s highest capital priority. Drake plans to update the historic facility to create learning spaces that meet the needs of today’s students while retaining the key features that have made the building famous. Meredith Hall sits at the heart of campus and is one of the most highly used academic buildings at Drake. Home to the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC), Meredith Hall is also the creative heart of campus and houses all student media organizations.

There are a number of ways to honor or pay tribute to others during this renovation for Meredith. We currently have three matching gift challenges for the renovation campaign through June 30, 2021:

 

  • A challenge for the Times-Delphic from Clark Bell (JO'73) and Doug Sauter (BN'73). Clark and Doug will match $30,000 in gifts made to Meredith, in honor of our historic and highly acclaimed student newspaper.
  • A challenge for Professor Bob Woodward from Jeff (JO'94) and Lisa Russell (JO'93, JO'98). Jeff and Lisa will match $15,000 in gifts made to Meredith, in honor of a legendary teacher and mentor.
  • An alumni challenge for your favorite SJMC professor, mentor or advisor from Dean Kathleen Richardson (JO'76, JO'01, LW'02). Dean Richardson will match $10,000 in gifts made to Meredith, in honor of your favorite SJMC professor, mentor, or advisor.
