You are invited to the groundbreaking of the new Mossman Building at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, October 29, at the construction site on the corner of Cumberland Avenue and 13th Street.

The Mossman Building will add needed classroom and laboratory space to campus and will house portions of microbiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, psychology, and nutrition.

The six-floor building is scheduled to be open for fall semester 2018. The building layout supports interactive teaching and hands-on learning, with plenty of space for both structured and unstructured interactions among students, faculty and staff.

The facility is named for the late Ken and Blaire Mossman, who met when they were students in 1968 and stayed connected to UT throughout their lives.
