The College of Health and Human Services will dedicate the newly remodeled spaces in the building on Feb. 15 with a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. and open house and tour of the facilities from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. With updated lab, research and classroom facilities, the $9.2 million overall expansion and renovation is part of the campus master plan to modernize academic learning areas.

The college houses programs in criminal justice, communication sciences and disorders http://www.bgsu.edu/health-and-human-services/programs/department-of-communication-sciences-and-disorders.html, pre-nursing, gerontology, applied health science, social work, public health and medical laboratory sciences. The Food and Nutrition program, which was integrated into the college in July 2015, has moved into the building, and expanding forensics and laboratory sciences programs will also use the space. The basement will be partially refurbished to provide additional individual and collaborative work areas for students.

The college currently enrolls over 1,800 undergraduate and 200 graduate students who will soon be entering a variety of health and human service professions.
