Elevating Spaces

A renaissance of new and transformed facilities is one of the legacies of Far Above. Donor generosity has supported 16 construction projects — new buildings, additions and major renovations — that are enhancing learning, research and patient care.

The views are breathtaking, but more importantly, these projects have modernized the spaces where concepts become inventions, students emerge as leaders and patients regain health.

Improvements have touched all areas — with expanded dining, learning and collaboration areas; updates to spaces for art, music and architecture; and new facilities for business, engineering, health education and patient care. 

State-of-the-art spaces are supporting the growing needs for learning in small, problem-solving teams with access to the latest technology. Our campuses can now welcome community leaders and businesses as never before with areas to host workshops, training and conferences, consistently partnering industry practitioners with our faculty and students. Students also have more access to advising and career services, helping them to be successful on campus and in their professions.
