Augusta University will formally break ground for the construction of the new College of Science and Mathematics building at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 23, in the former Lot 10 area between The Dental College of Georgia and the J. Harold Harrison, M.D. Education Commons.
As outlined in the Campus Master Plan, this move will better connect the health sciences and medical education on the Health Sciences Campus with the liberal arts education and professional degrees on Summerville. It will also open space for other colleges and programs on Summerville to expand.
The $70 million design will create nearly 125,000 square feet of modern building space to help enhance Augusta University’s attractiveness to students as the university continues pursuing enrollment growth. The addition of research laboratories in the new building will equip faculty and students to conduct scientific research and support the creation of additional graduate programs.
