Construction on Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation Ongoing
In July 2013, Baylor University Regents approved $2 million to continue with design of the $100 million, 275,000-square-foot Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation, which received a historic gift from Paul L. Foster, BBA '79, of El Paso, Texas.
With continued fundraising success, ground was broken in December 2013 on property across from the new East Village Residential Community on Bagby Avenue between Third and Fourth Streets. The new campus will be completed in July 2015.
The architectural design features a highly corporate and sustainable business environment, including a centerpiece atrium that will showcase some of the school's signature classrooms. The design also includes a 350-seat auditorium to accommodate guest lectures and special events, and a variety of classrooms that will incorporate the latest classroom technology for collaborative learning, innovation and problem solving. The new building is expected to expand the school's size by nearly 40 percent.
