Purposefully located in the center of campus CORE and the Hub for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will provide students with the technology, tools, and access to faculty and professional expertise they need to excel in today’s rapidly changing job market.
CORE will be divided into three levels, each dedicated to serving different purposes for students. The first floor will house the Hub for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. It will allow inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and venture capitalists to engage in opportunities that will propel the creative and innovative economy into the next generation and beyond.
The second floor of CORE will serve as a 21st-century library with a service and information desk, study and technology rooms, self-directed learning and workspaces for visitors, and an exterior roof deck open for selected hours. The facility will serve as a home away from home for students. With a large commuter population, many students spend a large amount of time in the library.
The Student Center for Academic Achievement will be relocated to the third floor of CORE. At the SCAA, students of all majors receive guidance and peer mentoring in writing, reading, math, and other disciplines.
