The School of Public Health (SPH) broke ground Oct.
23 for a $70 million addition and renovation project that will include
125,000 square feet of new modern laboratories, classrooms, interaction
spaces and community-focused research space. Funding will come from
private gifts, SPH resources and capital investment proceeds.
