Atrium Construction Completed

Construction on the new Morgan E. Cline Atrium for Pharmacy and Science wrapped up in January, providing a new hub for the students and faculty in the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (CPHS).


The two-story facility connects the Cline Hall of Pharmacy and Health Sciences with Harvey Ingham Hall and contains space for faculty offices and the large Hy-Vee Student Learning Commons. The commons, on the first floor of the atrium, is technologically advanced and outfitted to enhance creativity, team building, and collaboration. It includes room for individual and group presentation preparation. The open area will also serve as a venue for CPHS and campuswide events.

The project was made possible by a number of gifts to distinctlyDrake, including a leadership-level gift of $3 million from Morgan E. Cline, ph’53; along with support from Hy-Vee, Inc.; and the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust.

The sciences are a top priority of distinctlyDrake. Contact John P. Smith, vice president for alumni and development, at 515-271-2969 or for information on transformational gifts to the sciences.
