TERRE HAUTE -

Indiana State University will Friday celebrate the completion of the first phase of a $64 million renovation and expansion of its Health and Human Services Building. The university is hosting an open house to showcase the 87,000-square-foot addition to the building as well as technology improvements. 

ISU says the addition to the building will house new and existing academic programs. The second phase of the project, which will include the renovation of classrooms and labs in the original part of the 1960s-era building, is expected to wrap up in the spring of 2019.

The effort is the largest state-funded project in ISU's history. The university says it will address a critical need for classrooms and laboratories for its College of Health and Human Services. 

"This new building ... is concrete evidence in the investment of the state of Indiana in the health, health and wellness and social services workforce needs of Indiana," said Caroline Mallory, dean of the College of Health and Human Services. "The College of Health and Human Services is where students come to become professionals, where the faculty teaching scholarship and career-readiness, and where the public can be assured that we are using their resources to improve the quality of life for all of Indiana."

The open house will run from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
