In 2002, student leaders campaigned on behalf of the center, eventually gaining the student support necessary to successfully institute a design and construction fee to fund the construction. In addition, students contributed more than $1 million in additional funding to purchase equipment, furnishings and technological innovations.

The result of such effort is a student-centered facility that promotes wellness, encourages diversity, and builds community.
