Allen Center, June, 2012
The new Paul G. Allen Center for Global Animal Health is scheduled to be finished this summer! Mark your calendars for a reception and dedication of the new building at 10 a.m., Saturday, September 8.

The Allen Center will provide research and educational space for the rapidly growing faculty, staff, and students of the Allen School. Constructed to LEED standards to minimize the building’s energy and water use, the Allen Center was designed in harmony with the natural beauty of the Palouse landscape and the WSU campus. The Allen School’s mission is proudly displayed in the light-filled lobby for visitors to learn more about the school. The building’s open spaces encourage interaction between the students, faculty, and staff, while the glass walls in the research wing provide natural light to the laboratory and allow guests to see ongoing work. There are also three conference rooms for on-site learning and for scientists to connect to people across the globe.
