Who are the UC Builders?
Members of the University Builders serve as non-fundraising ambassadors and promoters of the vision and growth of the University of Charleston. The organization was established as the Women Builders by the President Leonard Riggleman in 1954. In 1990, the organization welcomed men to its membership and voted to adopt the name University of Charleston Builders
What do the UC Builders do?
They have donated more than $300,000 to UC to fund projects that improve the quality of life for UC students. The projects have ranged from intellectual stimulation (the purchase of library books and computer software) to physical comfort (refurbishing the Frankenberger Art Gallery and replacing benches across campus).
The Builders also host a spring luncheon meeting, a fall luncheon meeting and three or more Book-and-Author luncheons annually. Members pay annual dues, plus the cost of luncheons attended. All luncheons are from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Erma Byrd Gallery, Riggleman Hall, and guest are welcome.
Why should you become a member?
The UC Builders' success depends on its involved members. With over 300 members, the organization has been able to make a huge difference in the well-being of the University. Meetings are informative, enjoyable, and a great way to make connections.
