COLLEGE OF EDUCATION OFFICES TO RELOCATE DURING RENOVATION BUILDING PROJECT
The University of Idaho will begin construction on the College of Education Building renovation project this summer, relocating offices of faculty and staff through summer 2016.
“The renovation project will ensure that the building does not only meet safety requirements but also an investment in a space for educating teachers for future generations of children,” said Ron Smith, vice president for finance and administration.
The university will provide office space for College of Education faculty, staff and students across campus. Places include:
• Administration Building
• Idaho Commons
• Targhee Hall
• Engineering Physics Building
• Education and Anthropology Building
• Student Union Building
• Agricultural Science Building
• McClure Hall
The Curriculum and Instruction Department will be in Targhee Hall, TRiO programs will be in Targhee and the Administration Building, Student Services will in be the Educational/Laboratory of Anthropology formerly the ITED and the Dean’s Suite will be located in the Commons.
In addition, the College of Education library will be relocated to two locations: some holdings will go to the university’s main library. Curriculum materials will be housed in the Education and Anthropology Building, where EDCI classes will be held.
“The university greatly appreciates the flexibility of university housing and the students affected by this critical university project. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause,” Smith said.
The move will temporarily close Targhee Hall to the use of students as a residence hall starting in fall 2014. Students have been notified, and the university is working closely with those affected by the closure to provide housing and meal options.
"We are grateful to the University community for making room for us in multiple locations as we move out of the Education Building," said Dean Cori Mantle-Bromley. "And once completed, we look forward to sharing our classrooms and meeting spaces across the University."
