Funding for the project came from the State of Maryland, which provided a $2.2 million grant with the understanding that WAU would match that amount and complete the building within a year. The University board voted the $2.2 million, one million of which was donated by philanthropists Leroy and Lois Peters of Howard County, MD.
A formal grand opening of the building is planned for alumni weekend, April 13-15, 2012.
