Missouri State announced the renaming of a main hall on the campus after a major donor.
The Missouri State University Foundation announced the Professional Building for the McQueary College of Health and Human Services will now be the Ann Kampeter Health Sciences Hall.
“Ann spent many hours in classes and visiting with faculty in the Professional Building when she was a student. Now she wants the physical surroundings to assist students in their education,” Brent Dunn, executive director of the foundation, said in a statement.
Kampeter made a seven-figure gift to the MSU Foundation to allow a number of renovations to the building at the corner of Kimbrough and Elm:
- A centrally-located student access and advisement center that’s modern and fully equipped.
- Updates to the Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic.
- Additional meeting and study spaces.
The renovations to the Ann Kampeter Health Sciences Hall will begin immediately with a goal of being finished by the fall.
“Missouri State students are motivated to make a difference in their communities,” Missouri State President Clif Smart said in a statement. “By improving facilities and giving students more spaces to collaborate, we are investing in the future of health care.”
The building will contain:
- Biomedical sciences department
- Communication sciences and disorders department
- School of Nursing
- Department of public health and sports medicine
- Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic
- Child Development Center
- Preschool for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
