Submitted on behalf of Provost Marisa Kelly:
Plans for uniting the physical therapy program on South Hill are progressing on schedule, and I wanted to provide the campus community with an update on how that move will prompt some additional moves by other programs and operations.
As you may remember from our June announcement, we were able to take advantage of the renovation work already underway in Hill Center to include construction of the cadaver and movement analysis laboratories in that project. We are well into the construction design phase for those labs, which will be used not only by our physical therapy students and faculty, but also by other programs in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance and elsewhere at the college.
As planned, students currently in the physical therapy program will remain in Rochester through the end of the summer of 2014, with the new facilities opening for the 2014–15 academic year.
