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

|Plaza and Commons Legend|
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Delores Taylor, the wife of former UDC Administrartor, Dr. Alfred O. Taylor, and mother of Kenneth (Kenny) Maurice Taylor who preceded her in death, as she was called to her eternal resting home. Mrs. Taylor was a beloved wife, mother, daughter and friend to all.
Dr. and Mrs. Taylor, through foresight and philanthropy, established a living memorial to their son Kenny, whose love of gospel music was well known, by creating the Kenneth M. Taylor Memorial Scholarship at the University of the District of Columbia. The scholarship provides financial support to students seeking to share the Taylors’ passion for life and to inspire others of the beauty and wonder of music.
The family has requested, in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Kenneth M. Taylor Memorial Scholarship fund to preserve the memory of their son Kenny.
