Brite’s additions can only strengthen its ties with the university

The university’s long-standing relationship with Brite Divinity School is an integral part of its identity as Texas Christian University.

As the university finishes up multimillion-dollar projects like residence hall renovations and the Campus Commons, it’s only fitting that Brite receive a facelift as well.

While tax laws prohibit the university from actually giving money to the project, members from both institutions came together to raise the funds for a new academic building.

The new W. Oliver and Nell A. Harrison Building will provide 24,000 square feet of academic classrooms for the more than 200 Brite students. The old building will be put to new use along with the new one, and the overall construction project will be of little inconvenience to students.

With the help of a $1.5 million challenge grant, the school had more than $12 million of the estimated $15 million needed for the project. This should come as no surprise to students, who recently received news that the university itself reached a $250 million fundraising goal two years ahead of schedule this summer.

Donors should be commended for their contributions to both projects and to keeping these schools at the forefront of the competition among educational institutions.
