Looking Toward Future Academic Spaces

We worked with Ohio University on Heritage Hall, the $65 million academic home for our Athens campus that opened in 2021. The new facility has made possible innovative, purpose-built spaces for medical education. The design fundamentally changed the way we work, and improved our research and community outreach efforts. Funding for the project came from multiple sources, including $12 million generously provided by the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation as part of the OHF Vision 2020 award.
