Health Education Project

Nicholson Pavilion was built in 1959 as the Health and Physical Education Building. CWU’s Health Education project includes a major renovation and over 40,000 square feet of additions to the existing building in support of CWU’s health education programs. CWU received $60,505,000 from the state legislature in 2021 to design and build this project. The project bid in November 2021 and final completion is expected by fall of 2023.
