The project will provide new classrooms, research laboratories, study areas, a nursing simulation laboratory, and administrative offices.

The new health sciences complex will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver certification. Construction is slated to begin later this year, and completion is anticipated for summer 2025.

The funding comes from the Rebuild Illinois capital plan.
