Union University will hold groundbreaking for new science building

JACKSON, Tenn.Nov. 25, 2002 – Union University will hold a groundbreaking for its new science facility Friday, Dec. 6 at 8:15 a.m. at the site of the new building which is located across from Jennings Hall on the west side of the campus.

Lead gifts for the new facility include a $2 million gift from Roy White, $500,000 from Jackson-General Hospital and an anonymous pledge of $1.4 million. The two-story science building will house biology on the first floor and chemistry on the second – with other science areas such as physics, engineering and computer science to be added later in the next phase of the facility. Project completion is scheduled for 2005 with classes to begin in the new building in August of that year.

“The sciences as much as anything else we do at Union symbolize the university’s commitment to excellence,” said Union President David S. Dockery at the meeting. “We are very excited about where this process is going and we are very hopeful for the next two years.”

The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking. For more information, contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at (731) 661-5050.
