Burkhart Center Celebrates First Year in New Building

Burkhart Center celebrates one year in its beautiful, high-tech, 28,458-square-foot building just east of the Education Building. For the first eight years of its existence, it was housed in the College of Education. Now faculty, staff and students have access to observation labs, a gym for fitness, an art room and a mock apartment with a fully equipped kitchen. It offers the Burkhart Center much more room to grow.
