Grove City College Buys Former USIS Building

GROVE CITY, Pa. — A recent purchase by Grove City College will bring a new center for community engagement, education and innovation just a few blocks from campus.

The college announced it purchased a 77,000-square-foot office building at 125 Lincoln Ave. that formerly housed the corporate offices of the United States Investigative Services, or USIS. The government contracting company declared bankruptcy in 2015. It’s the largest off-campus building investment in the history of Grove City College.

The building will support major initiatives involving entrepreneurship, rural ministry and graduate education. It will also house the Center for Vision & Values for the college to promote faith and freedom to the next generation of American leaders. Additional uses will focus on strengthening the relationship between the campus and the community.

“The acquisition of this building has been made possible primarily with the support of generous College trustees and represents the College’s commitment to the town of Grove City and the region,” said President Paul J. McNulty. “We see wonderful opportunities ahead for meaningful connections with the community through the center’s initiatives.”
