“The expansion of the sports performance facility will better position DAPER to meet the needs of our varsity student-athletes as well as expand training and teaching opportunities for the broader student population.”
The renovated Sports Performance Center in the DuPont Athletic Building (W31) is being designed to address the needs of our intercollegiate teams that compete at the nation’s highest levels, while also welcoming newcomers to train and learn. Tripled to 8,000 square feet, the renovated space will include new equipment and a turf sprint surface, as well as enhanced teaching areas and cohesive MIT branding. Beyond everyday use, the new facility will be a valuable recruiting tool for attracting incoming student-athletes, embodying the culture of athletic excellence at MIT.
On a larger scale, to continue to make a positive impact on our campus culture and to encourage healthy habits, we must strengthen well-being education and services, making fitness resources available to all students. Creating dynamic spaces that promote student health and wellness, in addition to providing necessary resources to our varsity teams, is critical to MIT’s goal of advancing overall student well-being.
Your philanthropic support will help us achieve the promise of the renovated Sports Performance Center for our student-athletes and the entire MIT community.
Gifts of all levels are deeply appreciated. Naming opportunities start at $100,000. Yet to be raised: $1.9M
