Sewanee in the news: The Getty Announces 2004 Recipients of Campus Heritage Initiative includes:
University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
University of California, Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, California)
College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, Virginia)

The 2004 Campus Heritage Grants will help protect buildings in a range of historically significant styles, from the modern architecture of the University of Chicago (Chicago, Illinois) to the Romanesque, Italianate, and Neoclassical academic buildings of the University of Maine (Orono, Maine).

The recipient of this year’s largest grant is Bronx Community College.

Archaeologically important or historic sites are the focus of grants at Middlebury College (Middlebury, Vermont) and the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The University of the South (Sewanee, Tennessee) contains distinctive Oxford-style buildings of native sandstone built after the Civil War as well as important archaeological sites from the earliest historic settlements on the Cumberland Plateau. University of the South will use grant funds to prepare an up-to-date inventory and assessment of these architectural and cultural resources for a multiple-resource nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
