The case for renovating Crispin Hall

Renovated Crispin Hall
Illinois College must create contemporary learning spaces that attract, engage and inspire students, while providing world-class faculty the learning environments they need to teach and conduct research.

The College’s highest priority is to renovate Crispin Hall, which was built in 1963 and named for Dr. Egerton L. Crispin 1902, a noted physician and IC alumnus. While the first phase of renovations are currently underway, your support is needed to complete the crucial second phase of remodeling.

Inspiring Achievement aims to return Crispin to its scientific roots by expanding lab and classroom spaces for psychology, mathematics, physics and computer science. While the education that Illinois College offers in STEM is attractive to those hoping to become leaders in their field, without the proper facilities, the talented students who will benefit from this multidisciplinary education will choose to study elsewhere. These resources are vital for the College to remain competitive in recruiting and retaining students and preparing them for 21st-century careers.

73% of IC students take at least one class in Crispin each academic year.
