Construction will begin upon completion of contracts, with an anticipated completion of Summer/Fall 2014.

The $42 million Phase II project allows for further growth in the Quad Cities campus and will house academic programs in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education and Human Services and Fine Arts and Communication.
