President Wilson Gets Close Up on Construction of New Business School

_PAG6544-BizConstMorgan President David Wilson recently toured the site of what is to become the University’s new West Campus, a nine-acre parcel of the Northwood Shopping Center. The site will soon be home to the new Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management, followed by the new Behavioral and Social Sciences Center, a health and human services facility and structured parking. Dr. Wilson received a briefing on construction of the first of the three buildings, the business school, and was able to view progress on construction of the $72 million structure.

“I was very pleased to hear that the project is on budget and on schedule,” said Dr. Wilson. “The University community can expect to see some real progress on the building construction as early as this December.”

Completion is anticipated in 2015. The new business school is being built on the former site of the Hechinger and Burlington Coat Factory buildings, after the State purchased the land in 2004.
