Inspiring Achievement The Campaign for Illinois College

To inspire achievement and empower students to realize their full potential, Illinois College’s classrooms must provide innovative learning environments with integrated technology.

Follow along on Facebook to stay updated on the Crispin Renovation.

Teaching and learning have changed dramatically in recent years and Illinois College needs your help to provide technology-rich, collaborative, and flexible classrooms that prepare students for a changing workplace.

Crispin Hall, built in 1963, now connects our students and faculty with the tools and technology they need to flourish.

This new home for computer science, mathematics, physics, and psychology will provide extensive space for collaboration, both among students and between students and their faculty mentors. This renovation:

  • Provides students with contemporary learning spaces that attract, engage, and inspire them; 

  • Expands our academic offerings to include exploding fields like neuroscience, engineering, alcohol and other drug counseling, actuarial science, and data management;

  • Equips world-class faculty with technology-rich classrooms and labs for teaching and research;

  • Ensures vital resources for the College to remain competitive in recruiting and retaining students and preparing them for successful careers.

These technology-dependent fields require IC to keep pace to ensure students Graduate READY to be leaders and changemakers in a rapidly changing workplace. And because our liberal arts approach means all students must understand dynamic interactions of economic, social, political, and scientific issues, Crispin plays an integral role in every single Illinois College student’s education.

Your investment in Crispin Hall transforms an outdated and underutilized academic building into a state-of-the-art research center designed for hands-on learning that provides graduates with a competitive advantage in technology-rich fields.

Your support immediately makes Illinois College more competitive in the marketplace by increasing enrollment, strengthening the academic offerings, and making future alumni better positioned for graduate programs and successful careers.

Now is the time for great acceleration as Illinois College empowers students to make a difference in the world. The world needs Illinois College graduates now more than ever but students need your help.
