Concordia University Wisconsin is preparing for the opening of the school’s new Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center on its Mequon campus.
The three-story, 41,000-square-foot academic building houses Concordia’s business, education, hospitality and event management, and health professions programs.
Concordia will host a building dedication on Aug. 1. The school provided a preview tour of the facility as crews on Thursday put finishing touches on the building.
Among the building’s features are a “collaboratorium” space for student and community-led startups, a sound booth that will be used by the speech-language pathology program for audiology assessments, a mock courtroom that will be used by the justice and public policy program, a children’s indoor play area to be used by the health professions programs and a culinary lab that will provide hospitality students with commercial kitchen experience.
The building is named after the Robert W. Plaster Foundation, a Missouri-based foundation focused on promoting the free enterprise system through education.
