$1-Million Secured; St. Edward's says Yes to Mabee

In January 2011, the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation presented St. Edward's University with an opportunity and a challenge. The opportunity was to receive the final $1 million needed to build the $22 million John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences and Technology-South Building. The challenge was to raise $5 million in 365 days.

Commitments from more than 250 donors allowed us to not only meet, but exceed the challenge. 
St. Edward’s is grateful to everyone who contributed and worked together to successfully achieve this important goal. 

Successfully earning the grant allows the university to provide students with a new natural sciences and technology center that will include: 154 computer workstations, thirteen state-of-the-art classrooms, advanced computer and math labs, tutoring facilities and a 126-seat multi-use auditorium.
