Browning Hall was developed to provide a state-of-the-art facility that fostered interactive opportunities for academic collaboration and shared use by 9 departments/programs consisting of biological sciences, nursing, nurse anesthesia, anthropology, sociology, psychology, international languages and cultures and English as a second language.  The LEED Silver-certified facility is a 4-story, 87,268 square foot building that houses 26 labs, four classrooms, 71 faculty/staff offices and a 129-seat auditorium.

The building’s interior was developed to maximize collaboration by using a “science on display” theme.  This was accomplished by the use of glass interior walls that enabled constant daylight and the use of neutral architectural finishes.  To provide some contrast, bright lively colors were incorporated through the furniture finish selections.
