Kemper Hall is the home of the Construction Management program. From classrooms to construction and computer labs, students pursuing a CM degree at Missouri State University spend countless hours learning and working in Kemper. Over the last decade, the program has worked to update the building through renovation projects including select classroom remodels and a computer laboratory overhaul. If you have not been to Kemper Hall in the last four years, you may not even recognize some of the spaces. However, the main entryway to the building has remained virtually unchanged since the building was built. This area is the space in which new and prospective students get their first impression of the program. It is also a key intersection and gathering point for occupants of the building. We are asking for your help in making this space match the developments and strengths of the CM program at Missouri State. We want to create a space where students are proud to call Kemper their “home”. The proposed project would renovate the east entryway to include the following:

  • Larger and more modern awards display case
  • Increased digital signage
  • Better lighting and expanded electrical outlets for device charging
  • Donor recognition wall
  • Branding of space to better highlight the TCM department
  • Improved seating and gathering space in the “sunken area” near the main stairs

Thank you for supporting your Construction Management Bears!

Let's get to 100 donors!

When the idea about this fundraising campaign was proposed to the University, they thought we were being too ambitious.  They said that a campaign like this could NOT raise that much money.


We are nearing 50% of our goal, so we need your help in reaching more alumni and friends of the program.  Remember that ANY gift helps.
