Capital Campaign News and Events
Every day on my way in to work, I stop and say hello to first-semester student Jeremy Kovac. Since the start of the semester, Jeremy has been outside in rain, snow or shine watching the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Center for Science, Technology & Innovation as it’s constructed.
Landmark College has been awarded two grants from the Summerfield Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that supports “education, youth development, human services, the arts, and environmental awareness.”
Alumna Nicole Goodner MacFarlane ’98 came to Putney, on October 17, 2014, to surprise her mentor, communications professor Geoff Burgess. Nicole is the motivating force behind the $2 million matching pledge from the Tambour Foundation that kicked off Landmark College’s Capital Campaign to build the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center, which is slated to open in fall 2015.
On October 13, 2014, Ellen D. Smith of Brattleboro, Vt., will join Landmark College as the Vice President for Institutional Advancement, the chief officer in charge of growing the organization via fundraising efforts. Landmark College is a not-for-profit institution that delivers two- and four-year degree programs for students who learn differently and is constructing a new state-of-the-art building, the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center. Smith and the Office of Institutional Advancement will lead the last stage of the capital campaign for the new building.
On Saturday, August 30, 2014, members of the Landmark College Board of Trustees and President Dr. Peter Eden donned blue hard hats and wielded shovels to break ground for the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center, the first new academic building in the history of the campus. On this stunning late summer day, hundreds of students, families, faculty, and staff attended the Groundbreaking Ceremony at the entrance of the academic quad. The $10 million building is slated to open in August 2015. It will house programs in the natural sciences and computer science, as well as research and development activities.
