A New Home in the Making

In December 2013, the college will experience a momentous event with the opening of AHC5 – the new building that will house all disciplines of the college under one roof for the first time.  On July 11, 2012, 83 alumni and friends attended the building’s groundbreaking ceremony.  The consolidation of the public health, dietetics and nutrition, and social work areas in one location will foster an environment of collaboration and broaden opportunities for interdisciplinary research for faculty and students.
