First. Foremost. Forward.
Carroll University's new science building is a project ingrained with the pioneering spirit of Wisconsin's first institution of higher education. It embodies one of our top priorities, and a key element of the university's strategic plan, to "improve academic quality and strengthen the core educational experience for students."
The $24 million, nearly 42,000-square-foot facility will welcome its first class of students in fall of 2016. This is the initial phase of a three-phase project. It combines state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, research spaces and instrumentation rooms. It will transform the educational experience of every Carroll student, especially those students pursuing an education in the health and medical science fields.
We're excited to watch its progress! Check back often for project updates and the view from our live video feed throughout construction.
