A discussion on the transformative $110 million athletic facilities master plan.
Seth Woodcock, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development and Capital Planning, will share the vision for the future of UMaine athletics facilities, funded in large part by a $90 million commitment from the Harold Alfond Foundation. The plan includes support to maintain excellence in the state’s only Division I athletics program, advance gender equity and provide a preferred destination for high school sports championships, large academic fairs and competitions and community events. All of the university’s students and people from throughout Maine will be able to use the state-of-the-art athletic and convening venues at the state’s flagship university in Orono.
Woodcock will be joined by Men’s Ice Hockey Head Coach Ben Barr and Softball Head Coach Jordan Fitzpatrick, who will share their insight into what these renovations will mean to current and future student athletes and their respective programs.
Comments from the coaches will be followed by a Q&A.
