Miles Ahead Campaign
“The administration is pleased because this is the first opportunity in over 100 years to build a planned community," President George T. French, Jr. said of plans for the 41-acre site that doubled the size of the existing campus. The North Campus property is adjacent to the cur-rent Miles College campus.
The college raised $30.6 million in the first phase of its Miles Ahead fundraising campaign, a comprehensive effort with a number of components, including acquisition of the North Campus and site development.
Proposed facilities for the first phase include a health and wellness center with a child development center and an international studies and public policy building. It will take three to five years to construct these first buildings.
Miles College received a $700,000 grant from Housing and Urban Development to aid the Miles College Community Development Corporation (CDC) to develop housing and commercial property in Fairfield, Alabama. Miles College has incurred no debt in the multi-million dollar endeavor of the purchase, demolition, and site preparation of North Campus.
