MIU 2022 Capital Campaign — Land Acquisition

Hartnett Property

Land Acquisition

Hartnett Property

Remarkably, there are three choice undeveloped acres located in the very heart of our MIU campus. This land, owned by our Trustee Emeritus Chris Hartnett, is the ideal location for a new student vastu residence hall.

The site has a slight elevation which affords panoramic views of our main campus to the west, a bird sanctuary and Bonnifield Lake to the east, and the Punj Tennis Courts to the south.

As a favor to the University, Chris bought this choice land in 1997 for $350,000. And as a second gesture of generosity, Chris is willing to sell it back to MIU today at a steeply discounted price.

It is vitally important that we commit to this purchase— otherwise this highly strategic parcel in the midst of our campus will go on the public market!
