Capital Campaign

cousins center for science and innovation

Since 2013, Oglethorpe has seen the addition of the Turner Lynch Campus Center, the Atlanta Laboratory for Learning (A_LAB), Gables Brookhaven, the Reiser Scene Shop, a modernized track and field, renovations to Traer Residence Hall, and more.

Oglethorpe continues to upgrade facilities to improve the academic experience and campus life for our growing community. Our current capital project is the I.W. “Ike” Cousins Center for Science and Innovation, scheduled for full opening in August 2019.

The Cousins Center for Science and Innovation will change more than the appearance of Oglethorpe’s historic campus: it will change what and how Oglethorpe teaches. By creating learning spaces that align with our educational vision, Oglethorpe will demonstrate its dedication to a new model of the liberal arts and sciences, one in which theory and practice are connected in and across every discipline. The Cousins Center for Science and Innovation will be the new center for academics—physically and intellectually—on Oglethorpe’s campus.
When we graduate entrepreneurial thinkers and community builders, the likelihood is high that Atlanta is where they will stay, contribute and make a difference. An investment in Oglethorpe is truly an investment in Atlanta.

The Cousins Center will serve as the home for the Natural Sciences division and Oglethorpe’s new Q. William Hammack, Jr. School of Business.
