Middle Tennessee State University opened the $39.6 million Academic Classroom Building in August of 2020 in Murfreesboro. Designed by Bauer Askew Architecture, the 91,200-sf facility provides the College of Behavioral and Health Sciences with 14 classrooms, five computer teaching labs, research labs, specialized instructional suites, and faculty offices. Accommodating the departments of Criminal Justice Administration, Psychology, and Social Work, the collaborative three-story structure features an expansive atrium, a neuroscience lab for electroencephalogram research, and a mock command center where students pursuing emergency management training can learn best practices for crisis response and mitigation. A wing of lecture classrooms is available for use by the entire campus. Turner Construction broke ground on the facility in September of 2018.
