Regents Approve Engagement Center At UNK’s University Village

KEARNEY- The University of Nebraska Board of Regents voted unanimously to support a public-private partnership that will add a Regional Engagement and Alumni Center to the University of Nebraska at Kearney’s University Village development.

Chancellor Doug Kristensen called the $15.6 million project a “centerpiece and anchor” for University Village that will attract talented students and faculty to UNK, bring new businesses to the city and benefit employers across the state. The Regional Engagement and Alumni Center is planned as a two-story, 49,000-square-foot facility, will feature meeting, conference and public gathering spaces designed to accommodate both large and small events, as well as state-of-the-art technology capable of connecting people from across the world through virtual meetings and presentations.

Under the plan approved Friday, completion will be in summer 2022.
