In October, the LBC executive board approved the Pineville school’s request to make direct appeals to LBC churches to raise a portion of a capital campaign to renovate facilities.
LC President Joe Aguillard said the college has grown by 50 percent over the past six years.
The $12 million is part of the college’s $50 million capital campaign to make improvements across the campus,.
The college can approach the 1,500 LBC churches for $12 million over the next five years.
The $12 million from Baptist churches will be used to improve student housing. Aguillard said every housing unit on campus is to be completely renovated.
The $50 million total campaign is to be collected over 10 to 15 years. The remaining $38 million will go toward academics, athletics and infrastructure, Aguillard said.
