Dakota Wesleyan University’s new, $11.5 million Glenda K. Corrigan Health Sciences Center will be dedicated at 11 a.m. Thursday.

Dakota Wesleyan broke ground on the project Sept. 30, 2011. The building is a four-story, 48,000-square-foot structure that contains chemistry, biology and physics labs; two undergraduate research labs equipped with stateof-the-art equipment for student use; four nursing simulation labs; classrooms for nursing, athletic training, the sciences and mathematics; and faculty offices.

The project is supported by major gifts from alumni Paul ’50 and Donna Christen ’51, Huron, and Glenda ’64 and Fritz Corrigan, Edina, Minn.

The building will be the new home for the Donna Starr Christen College of Healthcare, Fitness and Sciences. Within this facility and college will be the Arlene Gates Department of Nursing, named for the late Arlene Gates, a memorial made possible by her husband, Ron Gates, of Mitchell.
