Peacock Arts & Athletic Center (PAAC)paac building

Upper Iowa University has entered into a low-cost lease agreement to occupy what was formally known as the Ideal Industries building located in Fayette, Iowa. Located south of Harms-Eischeid Stadium, the building will be

donated to the University following the end of a five-year lease agreement. This 30,000-sq.-ft. facility will provide UIU faculty, staff and students multipurpose spaces for three athletic teams and the art department, plus classroom and office space. In addition, the property offers six acres of land. We could not be more excited for the opportunities this space holds. 

With your financial support, the baseball, softball, golf and art programs will thrive!

In addition to creating the training spaces, all coaching offices and storage will be relocated to the facility. This will allow coaches to be present during individual workouts throughout the entire day, while also providing student-athletes the freedom to practice on their own free time. We are asking for your support in this project to help make this facility among the finest in all of NCAA Division II baseball, softball and golf. Naming rights are included below and projects include:
