New academic building gets the OK

A new academic building to replace UW-Eau Claire’s Brewer Hall/Campus School was included in the 2009-11 state budget.

The budget enumerated $44.5 million for the project, which will be the first new academic building constructed on campus since the Human Sciences and Services building was completed on Water Street in 1982.

While the academic building was enumerated in the current budget, funding for construction will not be made available until after July 2011.
