Oakwood outlines $9 million renovation project

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Oakwood University is hoping that a new $9,000,000 capital investment project will mean a renaissance on campus.

According to President Leslie Pollard, the first phase of the Capital Campaign has a consistent theme of,  "Building on the Past : Framing the Future." It includes renovations to Carter Hall (the freshman women's dorm) and expanding Ford Hall to include a new communication department and new media center.

Eventually, that will include a new Oakwood University Broadcasting Network.  

"This Oakwood story of God-ordained ministry is something that needs to be spread to the corners of the Earth.  We believe that OUBN will serve as the first step in blanketing the gospel message to places that others cannot reach," President Pollard concluded.

"As we seek ways to enhance the Oakwood University Experience*, the Board of Trustees and the Administration have approved a number of capital plans to enrich the lives of current and future Oakwood University students," explained President Dr. Leslie N. Pollard. "We believe the Building on the Past: Framing the Future Campaign is the first step in a series of plans to upgrade and modernize the current buildings on the campus and revitalize our mission."

The capital campaign is a time-limited effort by a nonprofit organization to raise significant dollars for a specific project; often, the money raised is to fund the acquisition, construction, or renovation of a building.
