CWU Capital Planning will host a town hall on Wednesday in Health Sciences room 102.

The Central Washington University community is invited to a Capital Town Hall on Wednesday, October 26, that will highlight a number of campus building project proposals on the horizon. The forum will showcase capital projects planned for the next two years and give attendees the opportunity to ask questions about the capital appropriations process.

CWU Capital Planning and Projects Director Delano Palmer says the event, scheduled for 3 p.m. in Health Sciences room 102, will be an enlightening and informative experience for faculty, staff, and students.

“We hope people from across campus join us to learn about the upcoming projects to improve our campus,” Palmer said. “We will show you how the capital budget process works, and share details about project development and the coordination between Facilities Management and Capital Planning and Projects.”

Palmer will speak at the event, alongside Construction Project Coordinator Michael Cox, and Vice President of Business and Financial Affairs Joel Klucking. The speakers will begin with some education about government relations, and the process these projects go through to receive funding.

The panel also will share details about upcoming initiatives, including the Health Education Project (which includes a renovation of Nicholson Pavilion), project proposals for the North Academic Complex, a new Multicultural Center, and a new Behavioral and Mental Health Center.

The town hall event has 200 seats available, and will be live-streamed and recorded for those unable to attend.
