This new $15 million academic center is a 17,000 sq. ft. renovation and 35,000 sq. ft. addition to the Whitney building. Providing technology-rich STEM classrooms and labs, faculty/student interaction spaces, a new student service welcome center, faculty offices, and bookstore, the space adds flexibility for multiple function use. As the new front door for the college, the building eases wayfinding for new and returning students. The CMAR delivery method construction was completed in 2013.
