If it seems as though the entire campus is under construction this semester, that’s because, well, it is.
UWM’s “big build” was sparked three years ago when the state legislature approved $240 million in building bonds to expand UWM facilities. Today, six substantial projects are getting underway, with one – the downtown building that now houses the Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health – already completed and in use.
On Oct. 24, UWM will break ground on the first new academically focused building on our East Side campus in nearly two decades – the 150,000-square-foot Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex (KIRC). The groundbreaking will be at 3 p.m. in the southeast corner of Lapham Hall.
