UNCG will bring out the shovels and hardhats to celebrate the official groundbreaking of its new $105 million Nursing and Instructional Building at a ceremony Friday, April 27, at 9 a.m. The event will take place adjacent to the Foust Building.
The facility, located at the site of the recently deconstructed McIver Building, is made possible thanks to state funds from the Connect NC Bond, which was passed by North Carolina voters in the spring of 2016.
The School of Nursing, currently located in four buildings, will occupy approximately 50 percent of the building. In addition to more space for the School of Nursing, the facility will provide teaching and flexible laboratory research space for Biology, Chemistry and Health and Human Sciences, as well as classroom space.
The new building is slated to open in the summer of 2020.
