Home for Innovation. Room to Grow.

Opened in fall 2021, the Francis X. and Nancy Hursey Center for Advanced Engineering and Health Professions has transformed our campus and will continue to meet the needs of high-caliber, dedicated, and deserving students for years to come.

The Hursey Center, a 60,000-square-foot academic building in the academic quad, houses new, specialized, and technology-rich facilities for our growing programs in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture; and the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions

The placement of the Hursey Center intentionally creates a series of gathering spaces around the building and across the quad. The iconic green roof aesthetically blends the building with the surrounding environment, while showcasing the many environmentally friendly features contained within.
