Central Michigan University’s College of Education and Human Services program grew from relatively modest beginnings to a nationally recognized doctoral and research-intensive institution.

The College outgrew antiquated facilities and wanted a new building to enhance its ability to meet the learning needs of its students, the instructional needs of its faculty, and the functional needs of its supporting staff.

The design process called for up-to-date instructional spaces, classrooms, labs, a child development center, as well as staff, faculty, and departmental offices. SHW Group held full-day visioning sessions, followed by a series of leadership and user group meetings to assure the facility met the needs of all user groups. Completed in July 2009, the resulting facility harmonizes with the existing campus while adding a more contemporary articulation for this prestigious program.
