The project consists of a 133,000 gsf structure that will house technology-enhanced and smart classrooms, seminar rooms, a lecture hall, computer laboratories, and office space for academic programs. These programs are currently located in Brookens Library and in prefabricated metal buildings located on the east side of campus. The new building will allow consolidation of all academic programs and key student services into permanent buildings in the center of campus, contributing further to the formation of a campus quadrangle. The buildings now located on the quadrangle are Brookens Library, the Public Affairs Center, and the Health & Sciences Building. The campus master plan calls for the development of more green space in the quadrangle area in order to create a collegial environment and social atmosphere. The new building will also permit Brookens Library to reclaim space now occupied by academic programs for crucial expansion of its collections and technology-related services. Also, the addition of new technology-enhanced and smart classrooms will raise UIS to a more advanced level of technological sophistication in delivering high quality education to its students.
