"This building will represent the mind, body and spirit of everything we do on campus," CAS Dean Mark Wooden told those assembled for a brief ceremony. "It will be the academic heart of this University."
CEO Brian Mueller also spoke at the groundbreaking.
"Long before I got here," he said, "there were people working here who built great programs. We're in debt to them. They helped build our academic brand."
