Auburn University Strategic Plan

Priority 1: Elevating Academics
The Auburn University System will elevate undergraduate education and enrich the undergraduate experience.


Initiative 4: Implement new projects.

GOAL 16: Auburn University has supported students in the creation and construction of a Wellness and Sustainability Center (Student Activities Center).

"Students have asked for a new student activities facility and have indicated a willingness to help pay for it through fees. The concept has been endorsed by the Auburn University SGA through passage of a resolution in the Student Senate. The basic purpose of such a facility is to improve the physical and emotional health of students. Instead of the traditional student-activities building found at most universities, Auburn will consider constructing a Wellness and Sustainability Center. The Center would address human health both from an individual perspective and from the perspective of environmental health and the relationships between people and communities. The sustainability goals established by Auburn will be complementary to the focus of the Wellness and Sustainability Center."

Summary of Progress Achieved:

  • Auburn has supported students in the creation of a Wellness and Sustainability Center (Student Activities Center).
  • Design plans for the 240,000 sq. ft. facility include basketball courts, racquetball courts, indoor track, weight room, locker rooms, and pool.  Construction began summer 2011, and the facility is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
