The Ices were instrumental in funding the purchase of the Research Park facility for the college.

"In the College of Human Ecology, we are passionate about what we do, whether it be teaching, providing service, or conducting research.  We strive to provide transformative, educational experiences aligned with a culture of creativity, scholarship and research productivity," said Dean John Buckwalter at the ceremony.   "Mary and Carl Ice share that passion for the activities we value. And they back it up with loyalty, and commitment of their time and resources."

"This building will enhance our ability to provide a host of solutions to some of today’s complex problems," he added.

Adding their appreciation to Mary and Carl Ice and to the College of Human Ecology were Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz and Provost April Mason.
