Abilene Christian University has received $55 million from three donors – including the largest gift in university history – to begin a series of construction projects that will transform the campus in a way not seen for nearly 50 years. The gifts kick off “Vision in Action,” a $75 million initiative that will result in three new facilities for the university’s distinctive science programs and two new on-campus stadiums for its football, track and field, and soccer programs.
