COLLEGE OF EDUCATION OFFICES TO RELOCATE DURING RENOVATION BUILDING PROJECT
The University of Idaho has started construction on the College of Education Building renovation project, 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 has provided 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 Laboratory of Anthropology Building
• Student Union Building
• Agricultural Science Building
• McClure Hall
The Curriculum and Instruction Department is in Targhee Hall, TRiO programs are in Targhee and the Administration Building, Student Services is in be the Education and Laboratory of Anthropology formerly the ITED and the Dean’s Suite is located in the Commons.
In addition, the College of Education library has relocated to two locations: some holdings went to the university’s main library. Curriculum materials are housed in the Education and Laboratory of Anthropology, 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 has temporarily closed 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."
