The Together We Reach campaign produced major changes for the College of Education. With a lead gift from Beverley Taylor Sorenson and the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, and the help of many other loyal donors, the College was able to construct its first new facility in 50 years. The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex, costing nearly $37 million, is a collaborative project between the Colleges of Education and Fine Arts and will house the entire College of Education, as well as the Tanner Dance program.
The 110,000 square foot Complex creates the nation's premier academic hub of multidisciplinary collaboration for education, the arts, and science. It contains administrative and department space, an entire floor devoted to research efforts, 7 classrooms, 1 auditorium, dance studios (including a black box theater), and numerous conference rooms and student study areas.
In addition to our new facility, we remain focused on providing more and more student scholarship support. Several new scholarships were created during the Together We Reach campaign and many others were renewed and/or further endowed.
