Olivet University Dover, which rests on 1,000 acres and has over 70 buildings, has secured the approvals and is completing its comprehensive plan for renovating the facilities. These changes will breath new life and new purpose into the historic, red brick buildings and facilities that will serve as the home of our proposed New York campus.
These will include administrative offices, dormitories, dining facilities, classrooms, faculty offices, libraries, student workspaces, and labs, as well as athletic facilities, including a Tartan running track and professional golf driving range. The final phase of the plan will include the renovation of the iconic hospital building.
Olivet University's ministry-rich Dover, New York location is fertile ground for Evangelical Center, a seedbed and spiritual home global evangelical missions. Evangelical Center was dedicated in 2016 together with the University's denomination, the World Olivet Assembly, and the global evangelical church body the World Evangelical Alliance. The Center will become a village featuring a museum and library with physical and digital resources.
Development company Dover Greens is building facilities to house entrepreneurship centers for space fostering collaboration and innovation across Olivet University Dover.
Technology provides important opportunities for local and global ministry in the context of an increasingly digitized world. Christian Innovation Center is envisioned as a space for innovative thinking and collaboration to reach the world with the Gospel message using the tools of technology, needed now more than ever in the current global pandemic.
The 200,000 square foot complex made up of six "I"-shaped buildings at Olivet University Dover will provide work and living space for up to 1,000 students and faculty will collaborate with Christian media industry for global mission impact.
