TERRE HAUTE -

Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch will Friday join officials from Indiana State University to cut the ribbon on the renovated and expanded Health and Human Services building. The $64 million project will house new academic programs and existing programs currently located on other parts of the Terre Haute campus.

Construction on the project began in 2016 after it received approval from the Indiana State Budget Agency. Crews built an 87,000-square-foot addition to the building, which was constructed in the 1960s. Improvements were also made to the building's temperature control, air quality, and technology systems.

The effort is the largest state-funded project in the university's history. The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Friday.

The ceremony comes about a month before ISU President Dan Bradley steps down and will be succeeded by Deborah Curtis. Bradley appeared on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick to talk about his legacy and his future. You can watch the interview by clicking the link below:
