SIPA Auditorium Seat Campaign
Phase I of the new building that will house the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) is now finished. The building’s most remarkable feature is a two-story auditorium that cantilevers 40 feet outwards and 17 feet off the ground. With seating capacity for 484, the Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Auditorium-named after a generous gift from the Broad Foundation-is the largest space of its kind on campus and is outfitted with top-of-the line broadcast media equipment. It is the venue of choice for many of SIPA’s and FIU’s high-profile events.
Each of the 484 seats in the auditorium can, and will be named with an appropriate gift. There are 99 seats in the first four rows, the VIP section, which can be named for a gift of $1,000. There are 385 additional seats that can be named for a gift of just $100. All contributions are expected to be matched dollar for dollar by the State of Florida and will be directed toward the completion of the SIPA complex.
If you would like to contribute to the building of SIPA by naming a seat in the Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Auditorium, please contact David Skipp at 305-348-7663 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
