Message from the director
The 2017 Winter Quarter starts with excitement for the build out of the first active learning classroom in the South Campus Center. Design of the classroom is a collaboration with representatives from all six of the Health Sciences Schools. Opening just prior to the Autumn 2017 quarter, the classroom supports Interprofessional Education and serves as a pilot for technology and design that support interaction within the classroom.
Also new this year to the South Campus Center is a student study space on the east side of the third floor and a lactation room also on the third floor.
Efforts are underway to address Health Sciences Building safety and security concerns. HSAS&F is partnering with UW Police Department, Environmental Health & Safety, and Facilities Services to improve lighting around the building, develop building access improvements, and enable timely communications to building occupants.
HSAS&F was honored with the ‘2016 Organizational Partner of the Year’ award from UW Facilities Services for participation in their Transforming Administration Program Small Projects Committee. The collaborative partnership developed between our departments supports our goal to provide the infrastructure and services vital to achieving academic excellence, scientific innovation, and world-class service (health care). We look forward to another year of collaborative excellence!
