The 200,000-SF project is now officially underway.
BALTIMORE – Morgan State University faculty, students, and staff convened with community leaders and local, state, and national government officials on Thursday, September 30 for the groundbreaking of the school’s forthcoming Health and Human Services Building, which Barton Malow is serving as Construction Manager for.
Barton Malow has maintained a presence on Morgan State’s campus since 2010 and the Health and Human Services Building marks its seventh project with the university. The $108 million, 200,000-SF project will bring a state-of-the-art innovation hub to its School of Community Health and Policy, School of Social Work, and University Counseling Center.
“This new Health and Human Services Building will be an incredible asset for Morgan students and our city,” said Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott. “It will prepare students for in-demand, 21st-century jobs in healthcare and technology, bolstering the economic potential of our young people and addressing immediate needs in our city and our country. The importance of this building and its value to the surrounding community cannot be overstated.”
The new Health and Human Services Building underscores Morgan State’s commitment to economic and technological development in the health and human services sector and coincides with the birth of a new era in the field – one that promises to energize the market with the next generation of innovators and leaders reshaping the ways in which we protect public health and provide essential human services amid COVID and beyond.
“It is a moment of joy, pride, privilege, and responsibility as I stand here as Dean of the School of Community Health and Policy, grateful for this moment, this opportunity, that the State, the City, the leadership at Morgan State University has given us, and our community surrounding this institution,” said Morgan State Dean of the School of Community Health and Policy Kim Sydnor. “This building represents the University’s commitment to be our anchor institution in Baltimore City.”
The new building is expected to be completed in early 2024 and will feature cutting-edge laboratories, classrooms, office and meeting spaces, and more for Morgan State’s School of Community Health and Policy and School of Social Work.
