Brick & Paver Campaign

Join other alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends in building a stronger University by purchasing a brick or paver on the beautiful Dr. Cleveland L. Dennard Plaza. Your name, or that of a loved one, will forever be etched into our history. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and will be designated for the UDC Foundation supporting student scholarships, University programs and operations.

The renovation of the Plaza Deck has created a new “greener” area with enhanced lighting and a new water fountain feature. The new structure also features an eco-friendly storm water management system to help reduce the runoff entering the city’s storm sewers. Increased planting areas also reduce storm water runoff, create separation between open spaces, and provide a pleasant environment for campus enjoyment.

Custom pavers, which make up the floor of the Plaza, were selected providing for larger sizes to engrave your name, date(s) of graduation or to commemorate milestones and to memorialize or honor treasured individuals.

Become a Milestone Supporter to build a stronger University and have your name etched on Dennard Plaza. The center of the plaza, Founders’Commons, is reserved for alumni of our legacy institutions.

Reserve your brick or paver NOW via our online web form or printable PDF flyer/reservation form.

We invite all alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to reserve your brick or paver.
