On the evening of November 8, 2005 (only a few weeks after celebrating the building's 40th Anniversary at Homecoming,) President Mary Meehan announced that the Campus Center would be renamed in honor of Sr. Austin Doherty, whose service and dedication to Alverno exemplifies the spirit of the foundresses of the School Sisters of St. Francis.

Mary made the announcement at the Celebration of Giving dinner, where the School Sisters were presented the Bene award for the generous support they've provided to Alverno College during its 118-year history. Mary commented that no one on campus has led a more student-centered life than Austin and it was fitting that a place where students lived, worked and studied should be named in her honor.
