State-of-the-Art Building Development
Whitworth University plans to expand its graduate health program portfolio and invest in an expert faculty team. The Whitworth Board of Trustees approved and accepted funding for a new 38,000-square-foot health sciences building. When it opens in 2022, the building will house the planned doctoral programs in physical and occupational therapy as well as the master's in athletic training program to allow interprofessional collaboration. This building is planned to include a motion analysis research lab, exercise physiology labs, anatomy labs, simulation labs, dedicated classroom and functional lab spaces, and a practice clinic. The new facilities will reflect the institutional commitments to quality, faculty, student and staff support, accessibility and environmental sustainability.
