While owned and managed by IUP, the Kovalchick Complex is designed to serve as a cultural and economic development resource for the Indiana region. It is named in honor of the Kovalchick family of Indiana, which donated $2 million for the facility’s construction.
In July 2009, IUP selected Global Spectrum, a leading firm for managing university arenas and a subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor, to manage, market, and operate the Kovalchick Complex’s Ed Fry Arena.
