MILWAUKEE – Ripon College in Ripon, Wis. has retained Kahler Slater, an award-winning architecture and experience design firm, to provide long-range campus and design planning services. Ripon College chose the firm after an open and competitive request for proposal process.

The firm will provide facility, architectural and design planning services as part of the college’s “Imagine Tomorrow” campaign – a $50 million effort that will support facility enhancements, new scholarships, faculty and student research, off-campus study opportunities and efforts to attract and retain faculty and students. A variety of facility enhancement projects will be studied, including the renovation of the campus’ historic spaces and the potential construction of new facilities.

The project is the firm’s first for Ripon College. The project team will be made up of members of Kahler Slater’s specialized higher education practice area.

“Kahler Slater has an impressive portfolio of work in the higher education market and we are excited to partner with them on this important next phase for our campus,” said Zach Messitte, president of Ripon College. “We are confident in their ability to help us remain true to our mission and historic roots while maximizing the appeal and utility of our buildings for all learners, today and well into the future.”
