On October 8, 2010, Centenary University honored the donors and benefactors of The Campaign for Centenary University for their part in bringing The Campaign to a successful conclusion with the “A New Star is Rising” celebration at Centenary’s David and Carol Lackland Center. The Lackland Center, the capstone of The Campaign, made this building a new focal point of the University.

Read the New York Time’s coverage of the new Lackland Center.

It is a 68,000-square-foot building that provides a home for the Centenary Stage Company; WNTI, the streaming, internet radio station; and CCTV Channel 23, the Comcast-licensed television station.

It also houses a 485-seat theater named the Sitnik Theater; the Edith Bolte Kutz ’42 Theater, which is a black box theater; a 400-seat dining hall; a 55-seat café; a dance studio; as well as classrooms, offices, meeting spaces and lounges.

The David and Carol Lackland Center was made possible by a lead gift from Centenary alumna Carol Burgess Lackland, a member of the Class of 1954 and a Centenary University President’s Circle Member, and David A. Lackland, a University Trustee.

The Lackland Center is a cultural and educational destination with a variety of theatre and musical performances, lectures and other cultural and educational events.  It is a regional resource to business and community groups who can use its contemporary conference center to hold meetings and events.
