A variety of naming opportunities are available. These opportunities allow for individuals, families, groups, faculty, organizations, businesses, and others to be a daily part of the building.
We have identified short- and long-term options. Ten-year term naming opportunities are available, then a permanent memento will remain in the building. Permanent naming opportunities will be honored for the life of the building. Several of these opportunities are as follows.
We will have a total of 12 new classrooms. These rooms will support our programs for most efficient use.
One large classroom will be a SCALE UP room. SCALE-UP stands for Student-Centered Active Learning Environment for Undergraduate Programs and is an innovative method and design for instruction. It focuses on learning in small groups and allows faculty members to integrate the work of each group with the entire class. ($100,000-200,000)
A Center for Assessment will provide UND’s teacher education programs with assessment training and tools needed for faculty and students in a centralized location. ($55,000-$200,000)
A Reading room (Named) will be a smart-classroom with all of the technology and furnishings we will need for our students, including interactive technology that will allow us to create an environment that enhances learning! ($150,000)
A STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) room will allow us to be committed to advancing science and math education to meet the increasing demand across the country. Having a room dedicated to science and math will allow for accessible storage and room for experiments and demonstrations. ($75,000-150,000)
A Model Classroom modeled after new schools in elementary, middle, and high schools will give our students an added benefit. It would allow us to keep at least one room consistently current with trends and would get our students ready for real world teaching and administering. ($55,000-150,000)
A Development and Research Lab will allow a stable environment for qualitative and quantitative research and development, along with state of the art equipment including eye-tracking technology, data capture, EEG research, and multi-media-centralized technology. The lab will primarily support instructional design and technology, along with other faculty research. ($75,000-200,000)
Seminar Rooms (4)
Our graduate programs continue to grow, especially as we offer our students the ability to earn an advanced degree while they are working full time. This requires students to work in cohorts, over weekends, often eight hours a day. Having the proper furniture, equipment, and technology in our seminar rooms is vital for the graduate learning environment. ($25,000-50,000)
Conference Rooms (5)
Conference rooms are used to host dissertation proposals and defenses, departmental meetings, candidate interviews and other meetings necessary within the College. ($35,000-60,000)
Faculty Offices (80+/1 Named)
Faculty offices not only house faculty members, their research and writing, but are also where most of our advising takes place. These offices need to be comfortable and professional while giving the feel of academia. ($10,000-25,000)
The lobby, housed in the new addition, will be the front door to the College. Offering a welcoming and professional environment, there will be areas for students to study, meet in small groups, and relax between classes. ($30,000)
Student Lounge ($25,000-150,000)
Teaching with Technology Lab ($30,000-80,000)
CREC Research Center ($75,000-250,000)
