Neumann University opened the Mirenda Center for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development
on October 17, 2009. Located on its main campus in Aston, Pennsylvania, the Mirenda Center features more than 72,000 square feet of space including an arena, classroom, meeting and event rooms, exhibits, offices, and athletic facilities. This new, state-of-the-art facility was named in honor of Dr. Rosalie M. Mirenda and her husband, Tony, by the Board of Trustees in acknowledgement of the Mirendas' many years of hard work, dedication, and commitment to the Catholic Franciscan identity and mission of NU.
The new Mirenda Center, built in part through the generosity of donors to the Grow to Inspire Campaign
, is designed to encourage learning, reflection, and prayer. It provides an educational environment that interweaves athletic, academic, social, and spiritual development. It serves to enhance the nationally and internationally recognized research and practice of the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development, which has been a core program and component of Neumann life since 1999.
