Background: The Genesee Community College Foundation is excited to celebrate the successful completion of its $5 million campaign with a victory ceremony on Thursday, September 10, 2015 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the William W. Stuart Forum at the GCC Batavia Campus center. The event will include refreshments, a brief campaign report and comments from GCC President Dr. James M. Sunser, GCC Foundation President Robert L. Boyce and General Chair Craig Yunker will highlight the successful campaign efforts.
The celebration will mark the end of an 18-month long fundraising effort for the upcoming expansion of the GCC Batavia campus, which includes a new Student Success Center, Event Center and expanded scholarships.
- The Student Success Center will bring together in one place new state-of-the-art services focused on academic, career and success coaching for students. The $5 million, 9,000 square foot facility will nearly encircle Clock Tower Plaza, transforming the outdoor space into an inviting courtyard.
- The Event Center will be located adjacent to the outdoor athletic fields on the Batavia Campus. At a cost of just under $14 million, the 43,000 square foot Center will be able to accommodate a wide variety of events.
- The campaign also includes funding for permanent new scholarships for students living in communities served by the College’s campus centers located in Albion, Arcade, Dansville, Lima, Medina and Warsaw. New scholarships will help meet the College’s commitment to making higher education possible for all deserving local students.
