Keep your eyes peeled for three significant changes at Concordia over the next few years.
President Brian Friedrich closed chapel on Feb. 2 with an announcement that the board of Regents has approved a project to construct the Dunklau Center for Science, Math and Business on campus. The construction is set to break ground in April of 2018.
“Answering the Call,” Concordia’s most recent capital campaign, raised $38 million dollars, making this project possible.
“God has blessed these efforts in ways that none of us could have imagined possible,” Friedrich said. “It will benefit all of our students in our two largest major areas.”
The project is set to be complete in December 2019. The current science building will also be renovated and repurposed for business, math and computer science programs, according to Friedrich.
The board of Regents also approved $2.5 million in renovations to the Music Building.
“There have been significant issues related to access throughout the facility,” Friedrich said. “Over the next two years, all levels will be handicap accessible with a new sprinkler system.”
Concordia will also be welcoming a new Agricultural program. Agriculture is slated to be offered as a minor beginning in 2019-2020 and offered as a major beginning in 2020-2021.
