Proposed new geosciences building

The concept of a new geosciences building at Kansas State University is being well-received by our alumni and friends. There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm behind this idea. We have developed this two-page information document and Wichita architects GLMV have created these renderings and video. Nevertheless, we still have many steps to go through before this project becomes finalized, including final permission from the Kansas Board of Regents and the State Legislature. We hope that these documents will help start a great conversation with the Geology Alumni Council about the future directions of the program and how a new facility fits with the missions of the department, college, and university. We are very excited to get this far and look forward to hearing more of your thoughts.
