Building for the Future

Addition Adds Needed Space and the Latest Technology

2013_building2A year after construction crews began adding two floors and 35,000 square feet of new space to the School of Health Professions Building, the project is on schedule to welcome students for the start of the 2013-2014 school year.

The expansion will provide state-of-the-art classrooms for the executive master’s and executive doctoral programs, create much-needed lab space for the Department of Physical Therapy, and allow consolidation of the Department of Health Services Administration into one building on the same floor for the first time.

Fund-raising efforts began last summer to replace the $6 million the school spent on the building expansion.

“While we still have a long way to go to reach our goal, I have been gratified by the many alumni who have shown their appreciation to the health administration program and the school through their generous giving,” says Harold P. Jones, Ph.D., dean of the school.

A campaign Web site was created to allow donors the opportunity to see the efforts of the project, naming opportunities, class challenges, and donation options. You can also watch the progress of the building through the school’s webcam. If you would like to make a gift to the campaign, please go to the site and use the online option or print out a pledge form.
