THE KING’S CAMPUS IS A PLACE OF COLLABORATION, GROWTH, AND FORMATION.
THANKS TO PARTNERSHIPS WITH GENEROUS BENEFACTORS, King’s is regarded as an innovator for our approach to modernizing our campus and revitalizing our hometown. We are opportunistic in our approach to rapidly, affordably transforming on-campus and neighboring facilities in ways that meet student demand and benefit both our campus and city.
We see potential for enhancing spaces devoted to student engagement and faith formation and are always working to ensure that every academic space meets the learning needs of today’s students.
OUR RECENT PROJECTS AND THOSE TO COME ARE THE RESULT OF SWIFT ACTION, WISE INVESTMENT, AND PHILANTHROPIC PARTNERSHIP—ALL FOCUSED ON ENHANCING THE KING’S EXPERIENCE, NOW.
The historic Memorial Presbyterian Church has been restored and renewed as the Chapel of Christ the King at the George and Giovita Maffei Family Commons. A former hotel has been transformed into the Richard Abbas Alley Center for Health Sciences, a dynamic living-learning community meeting the high demand for students in the health sciences. A historic downtown building is now the Mulligan Center for Engineering—the home for new engineering programs that few colleges in the region are currently offering—while another will soon become home to the College’s first doctoral program, the Clinical Doctorate in Occupational Therapy.
Our recent projects and those to come are the result of swift action, wise investment, and philanthropic partnership. With your support, we will build on this momentum.
PEOPLE AND PROGRAMS
Campus spaces are only as good as the people they are filled with. At King’s, our people are more than good—they are excellent.
Our investments in campus must include investments in faculty and staff who teach, mentor, and support students, ensuring they have meaningful experiences. We must also invest in technology, research resources, and equipment that match what our students will encounter as they enter the workforce. Real-world experience is a must in today’s environment, and your campaign investment will help us bring the real world right to King’s.
Richard Abbas Alley Center for Health Sciences
The Alley Center for Health Sciences is a vibrant and dynamic center for learning and living in the heart of Downtown Wilkes-Barre. King’s College has revitalized a challenged anchor corner of the city’s public square and transformed this space into an exciting and bold statement.
The Alley Center for Health Sciences is home to academic programs, attractive and safe student residences, community-centered art and cultural displays, and a restaurant and gathering place.
Mulligan Center for Engineering
The former Spring Brook Water Supply Co. building reopened as The Mulligan Center for Engineering at King’s College to house and expand civil engineering and mechanical engineering programs. The new facility includes four large multi-use classrooms, student study areas, six laboratories, and faculty offices.
Chapel of Christ the King
The Chapel of Christ the King opened at the site of the old Memorial Presbyterian Church located on North Street in Wilkes-Barre next to the George and Giovita Maffei Family Commons. The church has been completely refurbished and renovated to make it a new home for King’s College’s chapel.
Times Leader Building
King’s will commence its first doctoral program at the former Times Leader newspaper building, preparing students to serve others by gaining clinical doctorate degrees in occupational therapy. Laboratories, offices, and classrooms will provide the learning environment to expand on students’ talents, preparing them for the real world. The new program will create jobs and an expected economic impact of $9.5 million.
