The opening of the new Thomas Family Health & Science Center is an extraordinary benefit to the campus in more ways than one.

When the last box was packed up and moved out of the former science building, there remained 22,000 sq. ft. of empty learning space. With lots of planning, effort and restoration, the old building became the new digs for a very pleased workforce—departments that had been situated throughout the campus were now able to move from their crowded areas into the newly renovated Education, Social Work and Counseling (ESWC) Building.

Graduate Education is located on the first floor that provides ample office space for the faculty and staff as well as student classroom space.  The Department of Social Work is situated on the second floor, and Counseling Education is on third floor where the remodeled area provides valuable opportunities for practical application that includes several clinical labs, one of which is a counseling play-therapy lab complete with sand trays and puppets.

Extended University Services occupies the fourth floor where they now have plenty of legroom for daily workflow as well as opportunity for expansion.

Dr. Jim Bader, dean of the School of Education, Social Work and Counseling, says about the move, “All those who were involved in the renovation process did a remarkable job in transforming the old science structure into a professional space to serve the NNU students and community for many years to come. We are very pleased!”
