sciences faculty and staff began moving into the new Clark Hall
addition during the last week of July. The four-story, 45,000-square-foot
addition provides much-needed office, laboratory and computational
space to supplement Clark Hall, which houses the Department
of Environmental Sciences and the Science and Engineering
new wing is funded by a $10 million gift from alumnus Paul Tudor
Jones, who has long championed environmental causes. The University
is raising an additional $10 million in matching funds for endowed
professorships, scholarships, fellowships, field and laboratory
equipment, and a general department endowment.
Halls original building is being renovated with funds from
the state. That renovation will provide additional classroom and
office space as labs are moved to the new addition.
