When the transformation of the east end of the Danforth Campus is complete, it will be home to new academic buildings, extensive green space, a welcome center, expanded facilities for the arts, and an underground parking garage. It also will highlight a new place for meeting, eating, learning and wellness — the 18,000-square-foot Craig and Nancy Schnuck Pavilion, named in recognition of a leadership commitment from the Schnucks, dedicated friends and benefactors of the university.

A member of the Washington University Board of Trustees since 1996, Craig Schnuck was elected chair-elect and a Life Member of the board in 2013 and chair in 2014. He has served as a member of the board’s Building, Grounds and Real Estate Committee for more than 20 years and chaired the committee for 14 years.

He also is among a handful of university leaders who have played a key role in planning the east end transformation.

“For more than 20 years, Craig Schnuck has served Washington University with great enthusiasm and distinction,” Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton said. “It has been a pleasure to work alongside him to advance the university’s objectives. We are delighted that the Schnuck name will be associated in this prominent way with a project that he helped guide to fruition.”
