One of the largest capital projects Drake has undertaken in years, the STEM@DRAKE project will create a complex to integrate learning in science, technology, education, and math at the University. This project will propel Drake toward its vision for the future and help fill the gap in STEM education in the state.
Following a phased approach, Drake has renovated Harvey Ingham Hall—in addition to recent renovations of other sciences facilities—and recently broke ground on Collier-Scripps Hall, home to the School of Education and departments of mathematics and computer science, and the Science Connector Building, which will bridge Olin and Fitch Halls. In addition, Drake is converting the previous campus bookstore location on the northwest corner of Forest Avenue and 30th Street (3003 Forest Ave.) into a learning center and hub for the occupational therapy doctorate program and its activities. Throughout construction, you’ll find updates on progress and information about impacts to campus here.
Faculty, staff, or students who need to report an issue or concern related to construction activity should contact Drake Public Safety at 515-271-2222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If the matter is urgent, please call rather than email. Public Safety will address your concerns with appropriate construction or facilities personnel, depending on the issue.
