Born of efforts to revitalize the Roxbury Crossing section of the city, Roxbury Community College, a state-supported two-year coed liberal arts college, is the only institution of higher education in New England said to serve a primarily minority-based population. Stull and Lee were the principal master site planners and architectural designers of this long-term project. Occupying a large site beginning at the corner of Tremont and
Across Malcolm X Boulevard, Stull and Lee also designed the Reggie Lewis State Track and Athletic Center. Named after Reggie Lewis, a local basketball hero (Northeastern University and Boston Celtics) and social advocate in the Boston community, the center strives to perpetuate his legacy. This vision fosters academic achievement along with physical fitness to achieve a more just society. Within, an oval track serves many functions. Not only is the center part of Roxbury Community College, but also its facilities are open to the local community, participating in a variety of outreach programs.
