U-T San Diego -- The University of San Diego plans to hold a groundbreaking ceremony Monday to mark the start of construction of a $18 million, 30,000 square-foot building that will enhance its nursing education program.
The new Betty and Bob Beyster Institute for Nursing Research, Advanced Practice and Simulation will be a three-story building connected by a bridge and plaza to the current Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science. It is expected to be completed in fall 2015.
Beyster, the founder of government contractor SAIC, and his wife gave the university $8 million for the building. Other donations have brought the total to around $11 million and fundraising will continue until the full amount is reached. (Full Story)
