The project calls for building a state-of-the-art health sciences building that will allow students and professors to learn together across disciplines in a cutting-edge space. The three-story, 221,000-square-foot building will be constructed on the core campus and feature classrooms, faculty offices, student study spaces, and specialized laboratories. Both the School of Pharmacy and the School of Nursing will be housed at the new building.

In addition to the new building, renovations are expected for existing facilities and sites in University Park, including designing and reconfiguring parking lots, sidewalks, pathways, and roadways.
