„ Health Sciences. In January 2022 a new health sciences facility will expand CWU’s capacity to meet student and industry demand for degrees in the health sciences. These high-demand programs have nationally recognized faculty in fields where job placement of graduates is 100 percent. The state-of- the-art facility supports the Dept. of Health Sciences, which offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in paramedicine, nutrition and dietetics, public health, and physiology and exercise science. Previously, the department had been fragmented, with class, lab, and office space in five buildings—none of which was designed to accommodate education and research in modern health sciences. Health Sciences will be one of the most energy efficient and sustainable structures at CWU. The facility is on track for LEED Gold certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). The mechanical system includes a heat-pump recovery system that captures waste heat and reuses it to heat the building. The building also will have 9,000 ft 2 of solar panels and a solar ventilation pre-heat air intake, which saves money by heating air as it is used. And the project adds two electric vehicle charging stations to the campus. „ Health Education. This project will renovate and add to Nicholson Pavilion, which was constructed in 1959 as the “Health and Physical Education building.” The project will renovate 55,000 square feet of Nicholson Pavilion, which has only seen minor renovations since its construction nearly 60 years ago - and connect it to the Dorothy Purser Hall facility. CWU self-funded the project predesign, received a $5- 1 Health Education has been established as the working name for this facility while under construction. 2 This is identified in the 2019-2029 Capital Master Plan as the Government, Ethics, and Civic Engagement Complex .
