Manning Academic Center

Manning Academic Center

On Aug. 30, 2016, members of the University community and their guests gathered at Owings Mills North to celebrate the opening of the Kevin J. Manning Academic Center.

The 200,000-square-foot renovated building was designed to provide current and future students with state-of-the-art, expansive learning spaces. Now, a capital campaign focused on the center is inspiring benefactors— including Stevenson’s Trustees, friends of the University, local foundations, and companies—to step forward.

To date, more than $13 million has been raised to support the creation of the space and the opportunities for learning inside it. Now Stevenson’s largest academic space, the Manning Academic Center houses the School of Design, the Sandra R. Berman School of Nursing and Health Professions, and the Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences.

The Sandra R. Berman School of Nursing and Health Professions

Malcolm and Sandy Berman are steadfast supporters and friends of Stevenson University. Sandy, a Stevenson Trustee and a leader in the greater community, has actively worked to guarantee that our healthcare and education systems are strong and thriving.

Continuing their extraordinary support of the community and connecting two of Sandy’s areas of interest, the Bermans made a leadership gift toward the Academic Center Campaign, which Stevenson is recognizing through the naming of the Sandra R. Berman School of Nursing and Health Professions.

The Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences

Stevenson received a second leadership gift from The Beverly K. and Jerome M. Fine Foundation. Trustees of the Foundation, Louis and Phyllis Friedman, were introduced to Stevenson by their friends, Malcolm and Sandy Berman, and selected Stevenson University as the beneficiary of this monumental gift. The Friedmans believe that this naming gift is an ideal project for the Foundation and a fitting way to honor and remember Mrs. Fine. The School of the Sciences will now be known as the Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences.

Dick Watts Hall of Fame Rendering

Dick Watts Athletics Hall of Fame

Dick Watts has been a coach, teacher, mentor, and friend to many. He has given his time, care, and advice to many people throughout his more than 60-year career. The naming Stevenson University’s Hall of Fame in his honor will allow past and future generations to be inspired by his excellence and dedication to athletics.

Owings Mills East

Stevenson University is developing the Owings Mills East campus to serve as its athletic hub. This project will provide the university’s NCAA Division III athletics program with four practice fields, a track, and a baseball and softball complex.

The university seeks philanthropic support to help construct this new addition to its campus. While Stevenson has received some financial support from the State of Maryland, philanthropic gifts are required to finish the project.

The New Stevenson Theatre

Stevenson University plans to open a new 45,000-square-foot Theater on its Owings Mills campus. This new facility will house a black box theater, scene shop, student classrooms, and administrative and support space, and will be adjacent to our new Philip A.

This facility will serve the students of our Theatre and Media Performance program, including providing a new venue for the program’s four major stage productions per year, as well as students involved in other Fine Arts projects through our English, Fashion Design, Film and Moving Image, and Graphic Design programs. Stevenson values its relationship with its neighbors, and the new theater will allow us to host community groups and organizations for special events and cultural programs.
