Bryan College Announces 2018 Vision To Reality Plans

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Visitors to Bryan College’s campus will soon be greeted with the sounds of construction and signs for upcoming projects that will showcase the College’s ‘2018 Making a Difference: Vision to Reality’ initiative. An announcement will be made in the coming days regarding a new school within the College, thanks to the generosity of a College alumnus.  

The College is currently searching for a provost and vice president of Academics to provide leadership and direction for many of these efforts. Dr. Kevin Clauson will be returning to the classroom and pursing his passion as director of the Center for Faith, Freedom and Constitution for the College.    

The College has significant capital projects underway during each quarter of 2018. New field lights will be installed in time for softball practice and provide additional lighting for evening games.  In the spring, new roofing will prepare campus buildings for energy efficient upgrades. 

New solar panels will also be installed on Latimer Student Center, Mercer Hall and the library. An upgrade of the energy management system will be made followed by the remodeling of the practice gym and construction on Mercer’s third floor to provide additional classrooms and faculty offices.  

Construction of a new Welcome Center will begin and the College’s tennis courts will be renovated over the summer months.  Fall will see the completion of most of these projects with construction planning beginning for a new Field House for the athletic program.  

Bryan College President Stephen Livesay said, “The blessings we are receiving come at a pivotal time for Bryan College.  God has given us the means to provide new programs, infrastructure and equipment that will further our mission of educating students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today’s world.  This is an exciting time for all of us at Bryan College. We are incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received and look forward to continuing to make a difference."
