Need for a New Building

​​Escalating Demand

​Over the past decade alone, the university has experienced:
  • A 210 percent increase in undergraduate biology majors
  • A 71 percent increase in tenure-track faculty
  • A 10-fold increase in external grant funding
Biosciences aren't new to Central Michigan University.  For years, CMU researchers have made breakthroughs in areas such as Alzheimer's and cancer research, and have increased our understanding of the Great Lakes.

On April 11, 2013 the CMU Board of Trustees approved the construction of the new Biosciences Building - the largest capital project ever for the university.
