Education groundbreaking set for May 5

StoryThe public is invited to a groundbreaking ceremony and reception for the Cleveland Hall/Education Addition on the Pullman campus at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 5, at the southwest corner of Cleveland Hall. WSU President V. Lane Rawlins and Provost Robert C. Bates will join Dean Judy Mitchell and other representatives of the College of Education as speakers at the event.

The addition, which will be linked to Cleveland Hall by a covered pedestrian bridge, will contain six classrooms (all wired with the latest high-tech connections), two project rooms, eight offices and plenty of open common space for study groups and informal interactions.

The Washington Legislature allocated $11 million for this project. The building will be completed by August 2005.

“This will be a beautiful building and a very useful teaching environment,” Mitchell said. “Our thanks to the legislators and supporters who made this dream come true.”
