As the first project on the Brown County campus, the two-story Academic Building includes new classrooms, laboratories and a general learning commons to facilitate more student and faculty activity. A help desk and lounge space create a welcoming atmosphere upon entry, while the “one-stop shop” space accessible from the lobby provides students with convenient access to financial aid assistance, registration support and various other student services.

A spacious community room will serve as a new venue for college and community events, and can be used as an additional classroom for an expanding student population. The site and surrounding landscape are extensions of the learning environment, and will set the tone for future campus development.
