Teaching and research today require 21st
century facilities: open, highly flexible, technologically advanced spaces designed to inspire and facilitate fast-paced, interdisciplinary work.
The educational experience of our students, however, is not limited to classrooms and laboratories. Supportive facilities, including residence halls, community spaces, and athletic facilities, are vital to attract talented students and faculty and ensure that these bright minds reach their full potential.
Some of the priorities for new construction and renovation include:
- Charles F. Knight Hall and George and Carol Bauer Hall for the Olin Business School
- A new building for the Brown School’s social work, public health, and policy programs and for the university’s Institute for Public Health
- Anabeth C. and John D. Weil Hall, a new building for graduate study in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts
- Renovation and modernization of the Athletic Complex, including the development of the Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center
- Continued development of the new engineering complex on the northeast corner of the Danforth Campus
- Revitalization and expansion of space for the physical sciences on the Danforth Campus and expansion of space for biomedical research on the Medical Campus
- Additional enhancements to student housing, including the South 40
Giving our students an educational experience of the highest quality and providing facilities that are commensurate to and supportive of some of the best research and scholarship in the world are important parts of our strategic plan. To these needs, we will seek a minimum of $225 million.
