The Board of Directors for the Greater Wichita YMCA announced today that it achieved its fundraising goal to bring a YMCA to the Wichita State University campus, and the new facility will be named in honor of longtime volunteer and supporter Steve Clark.

“It’s a great day for all involved – the community, Wichita State, WSU students and the Y,” commented YMCA President and CEO Ronn McMahon. “We not only wrapped up our largest-ever fundraising effort, but also get to celebrate the amazing work of one of our greatest supporters.”

The Steve Clark YMCA and WSU Student Wellness Center will be located at 1980 Mid Campus Drive as part of the WSU Innovation Campus. The new Y is anticipated to impact 22,000 lives, including students, faculty, Innovation Campus employees, and local youth and families.

Site preparation has already begun, and the new facility is anticipated to open January 2020. In addition to YMCA health and recreation space, the building will house WSU student health and counseling services, and a Wesley Urgent Care Center.

SJCF Architecture is serving as architects on the project with Coonrod & Associates as the general contractor.
