Texas Woman’s University in Denton has broken ground on a $107 million health sciences center.
The university says the 136,000-square-foot facility is being built on seven acres adjacent to Parliament Village, a university residential community, and will serve students in the allied health care fields — such as nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy — with a special emphasis on preparing students to serve in rural settings.
The building will have labs, classrooms, collaborative workspaces, outdoor clinic sites and a teaching kitchen, as well as community health care clinics and training spaces for students.
Construction is scheduled for completion in summer 2025.
The center will serve as a hub for community and rural health efforts. The center also will spur collaborative programming among the university’s five colleges; the university's goal is to graduate 30% more nursing and health care professionals and support the state’s plan to produce more health professionals.”
The university also launched the public phase of a $125 million comprehensive fundraising campaign, Dream Big, which will support continued growth and leadership development in health and life sciences, financial and business services, entrepreneurship, technology and aviation.
The campaign, scheduled to end in conjunction with the university’s 125th anniversary in 2026, is the university’s first-ever comprehensive fundraising effort.
To date, the university has raised more than $103 million.
