Morrissey and Shannon Halls - Repurposing Space

This project involves full building renovations and repurposing for the Morrissey and Shannon Hall for the relocation of departments within the College of Arts & Sciences. The following departments will be relocated to Morrissey Hall: Psychology, MFT, Sociology & Anthropology, and Modern & Classical Languages. Also, Physics will be relocated to Shannon Hall along with labs within the Chemistry department that currently leases space in ABI. The renovation will provide space for enrollment growth in Parks College, Communication Science and Disorders, Computer Science, and Disability Education. In addition, the project will address accreditation issues in Psychology and position science to increase enrollment and research in response to job opportunities in STEM. Furthermore, the anticipated project outcome is to increase tuition revenue from STEM enrollment growth, improve science support for health-related programs, protect and expand research programs and external funding, expand community outreach through Disability Education and the Psychology and Counseling clinics and create academic synergies: Modern Classical Languages & Sociology; Physics & Chemistry; Parks & Atmospheric Sciences.
