The University of Minnesota broke ground in February of 2018 on the $109 million Health Sciences Education Center in Minneapolis. Designed by Perkins+Will and The S/L/A/M Collaborative to support interprofessional education, the project includes the creation of a new 142,100-sf facility and renovation of 52,000 sf of existing space. Integrating technology with new instructional pedagogies, the center will feature active-learning classrooms, team collaboration spaces, simulation training suites, a teaching visualization lab, a faculty commons, and a sophisticated library. JE Dunn is the construction manager for the facility and Perkins+Will is also the architect of record. Construction will begin in June of 2018 with occupancy expected in early 2020.
