Work on Global Business & IT Center Underway!

Clearing on International Boulevard for the Global Business and IT Center
August 02, 2018

Ground clearing has begun on the $20 million William H. Jones Global Business & IT Center. Named after CIU’s chancellor Dr. Bill Jones, the Center will be the hub for educating students in best practices for Business and IT and how to integrate those skills into the global world. The Center also signals the CIU’s commitment to economic development along Monticello Road, the gateway to the CIU campus. Six properties on Monticello Road have been purchased by CIU or are under contract for the purpose of revitalizing the corridor.

That’s just one construction/renovation project keeping work crews busy this summer on campus. Already complete is the new CIU Campus Store located in the Rossi Student Center.

Meanwhile, major renovations to the Fisher Classroom Building and Shortess Chapel continue.

In athletics, progress advances  on the $1 million Olympic-style Mondo track at the Ben Lippen football field. The track will be used by CIU and Ben Lippen School athletes. Construction of CIU’s softball field is underway in preparation for CIU’s inaugural women’s softball season in spring 2019.

Also, $10 million in air conditioning, water, lighting and other infrastructure upgrades are taking place this summer.
