Looking Toward Future Academic Spaces
We’re working with Ohio University to plan a new $65 million academic home for our Athens campus that will anchor the university’s future Union Street Green. The new facility makes possible innovative, purpose-built spaces for medical education, as well as fundamental changes to the way we work and improvements to our research and community outreach initiatives. Funding for the project comes from multiple sources including $12 million generously provided by the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation as part of the OHF Vision 2020 grant.
