Upgrading Campus Buildings, Roads, and Grounds

MUM needs to enroll more students from high-income families. Exceptionally well-maintained buildings, roads, and grounds are essential features in attracting and retaining full-pay students.

These features give parents visual assurance and pride that their children are spending their college years in a dignified and prestigious environment.

Below is a partial list of projects, some small and some large, that need funding. Each project will have a marked impact on the MUM campus appeal and quality of life.
