The Legacy Initiative gives everyone the opportunity to establish their legacy at the University of North Alabama by helping rebuild the heart of the majestic UNA campus – Harrison Fountain and Plaza, to insure the perpetual vitality of UNA and to have their names forever etched in Harrison Plaza.

The Legacy Initiative will have two phases:

Phase I is the restoration of the Harrison Fountain and Plaza and will continue until this project is fully funded.

Phase II is the securing of funds and establishing an endowment for the greatest needs and emerging priorities of the University. This phase will continue until every brick in Harrison Plaza, and the pathways leading to it, has the name of someone on it who loves UNA as much as we do.

 

Pieces of the original Harrison Fountain are available for purchase!
