Michigan State University’s Board of Trustees today authorized a $10.3 million project to update the infrastructure and functionality of the Eppley Center in the university’s Business College Complex.

The 58-year-old building will be reconfigured to bring undergraduate advising and other student academic support services, as well as computer labs, into one location — a move made possible by the recent completion of the Edward J. Minskoff Pavilion.

“It is vitally important that the critical support services our students need are as accessible as possible,” said Broad College of Business Dean Sanjay Gupta. “We’ve made a commitment to align our facilities to promote student success, and this investment will deliver on that for years to come.”

Because the building’s original mechanical systems are inefficient or inoperable, the center will receive safety and energy efficiency improvements including LED light fixtures, fire alarm and suppression systems and heating and cooling systems.
