SP4.3: Creating a Nexus for Global Engagement: The Global Center

This project will transform the Computer Center into The Global Center, a highly inviting and visible central campus space to foster global engagement by co-locating an array of international programs and services. The vision for the center is to create a nexus that encourages social gathering and facilitates collaboration of many different globally focused departmental offices. While completion of the project can occur only after current occupants leave the Computer Center in 2015, planning is under way by Physical Facilities and the Space Management Council to program the building for its new function.
