Environmental 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 Libraries.

The 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.

Clark Hall’s 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.
