The Center for Community, scheduled for completion in 2010, will feature centralized key student services and programs on the upper floors including Career Services, International Education, and Counseling and Psychological Services. It will be home to the largest dining center on campus with the capacity to serve 900 people and the flexibility to host special events and meetings with an underground parking garage to support access.
The building design emulates the campus Tuscan Vernacular style through its use of straightforward forms and building materials palette including indigenous sandstone walls and limestone-framed wall openings.
The Center for Community is designed to achieve LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for environmental sustainability).
