Inspiring Creativity, Collaboration, and Innovation

PORTER FAMILY CENTER FOR INNOVATION & ACADEMICS​

This exceptional 70,000+ square foot facility will offer transformative spaces for Highlanders to learn, collaborate, problem-solve, and create. The new Porter Family Center for Innovation & Academics will replace Hale and Johnson Halls, outdated structures built in the 1950’s which no longer match the excellence of our students or faculty.

All project designs are subject to change.
