Leaders from the University, College of Nursing and the College of Letters and Science will dedicate their updated teaching and research facilities beginning with a program at 11 a.m. in Clow Lecture hall 104L. A reception and tours will follow. The grand opening celebration is open to the public.
The extensive renovation of the Clow complex represents UW Oshkosh’s commitment to providing quality nursing education and letters and science programs to help students meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Within the new space, College of Nursing students have access to new labs featuring spaces for students to work with faculty in hands-on situations, a simulation suite set up to replicate a hospital setting, a community simulation apartment for students to train in the areas of hospice and home care, and much more.
“The new space and equipment will enable us to continue to teach our students to provide nursing care that is cutting edge. Our new classrooms, lab spaces, simulation and computer technology will showcase the talent of our nurse educators and support staff and demonstrate why we lead Wisconsin in developing caring and scholarly nurse leaders,” College of Nursing Dean Leslie Neal-Boylan said.
College of Letters and Science students use the renovated building through a new psychology lab, which allows for expanded research opportunities, a foreign language instructional drop-in lab, and new general access classrooms and lecture halls.
In alignment with UW Oshkosh’s commitment to sustainability, the updated Clow building has been designed to U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver standard. The U.S. Green Building Council is a nonprofit organization committed to a prosperous and sustainable future through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings.
