C.H. "Chub" O'Reilly Enterprise Center and Breech School of Business Administration: A defining moment for Drury University

We are on the verge of something big. Something that will not only impact Drury now, but also for generations to come. Something important, something powerful – a game changer.

For the past two years, Drury has diligently planned and prepared for a transformative, campus wide campaign. Go Beyond the Campaign for Drury University will reinvigorate the Drury academic experience, construct a needed campus building, enhance scholarship support for students and reframe the campus hardscape and landscape to enhance its beauty and connectivity. With a $73 million goal, Go Beyond the Campaign for Drury University is the largest campaign ever undertaken by the university.

The largest piece of this fundraising puzzle broke ground October 29th.

The state-of-the-art Enterprise Center will house the Breech School of Business, the Department of Political Science and International Affairs, related academic programs, and high-tech collaborative spaces.

It will also be the lynchpin of Your Drury Fusion, which is the result of years of planning and analysis on behalf of the entire Drury faculty. Your Drury Fusion blends learning for life and profession with hands-on experiential learning, and the interdisciplinary Enterprise Center is essential for its full delivery.

Over half of the Enterprise Center will be filled with collaborative, interdisciplinary spaces, including design, data analytics and cybersecurity labs, along with a trading floor. 

Executive Conference Center

The Executive Conference Center will significantly expand impact and functionality of the building, encompassing a large lobby area as well as the forum: an expansive space for meetings, conferences and workshops such as small-business programming, TEDx Talks, speakers and live performances.

Realizing the vision

The Enterprise Center will enhance Drury’s ability to recruit, educate and support students. It will allow for new advances in our Breech School of Business, and back the full launch of the transformational Your Drury Fusion curriculum. Once constructed, the Enterprise Center will be a campus hub at which deep, interdisciplinary learning inspires generations of Drury students to achieve their full potential.

Naming and recognition opportunities are still available. Contact Wayne Chipman and Judy Thompson for more information.
