North Dakota State University
A. Glenn Hill Center
Fargo, North Dakota
This new state-of-the-art STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) instruction building on campus was built to address the classroom and laboratory needs of students.
This building provides state-of-the-art, safe spaces for science and technology instruction; has freed up and allowed for better use of existing space to support research and teaching in STEM areas; supports the unanimous top capital project priority of all colleges, deans and senior academic leadership at NDSU, the business community and the state of North Dakota by providing excellent educational opportunities in the STEM fields of study; and aligns with the third goal of the SBHE, which states “Economic development through quality education, research, training and service.”
Spaces in the building are devoted exclusively to labs and traditional science and engineering classrooms as well as modular “open frame” flexible classrooms that would range in size from 20 to an auditorium that house 250-500 students. The building would also add much-needed classroom space to the campus as student enrollment has outgrown the available space and there are no accommodations for any future growth.
