Foundations of Excellence

The groundbreaking for Kent State University’s new Center for Architecture and Environmental Design will be Oct. 3 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The building will serve as the new home of Kent State’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design, bringing all of the programs of the college under one roof. The building will be located between South Lincoln and South Willow streets, just south of the Lefton Esplanade and across the street from Franklin Hall.

In October 2014, three Foundations of Excellence: Building the Future events took place on the Kent Campus: the College of Architecture and Environmental Design broke ground on its new building, the College of the Arts celebrated the launch of the new Center for the Visual Arts, and the Department of Residence Services dedicated the newly remodeled Tri-Towers residence hall complex.

Kent State University will celebrate the newly renovated Tri-Towers residence hall complex on Oct. 15 at 4:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

One of the most all-encompassing transformations in university history is taking place right now at Kent State University. The Foundations of Excellence: Building the Future initiative includes the construction of new buildings, facility upgrades and establishment of dynamic, new spaces. These projects support academic success, while demonstrating Kent State’s leadership in campus safety, accessibility and sustainability and serving as a powerful magnet for top students, employees and partners.

The Aeronautics and Technology Building, opening in spring 2015, will be the new facility for Kent State University’s College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology. The building is approximately 55,200 gross square feet and will include air traffic control training rooms in a lower level, classrooms and shop areas on the first floor, and faculty offices and classrooms on the second floor.
