The 10,000 square-foot, four-level building will be a transformational gathering place, where UNMC will welcome guests, host events and meet with friends and colleagues. It will celebrate and memorialize UNMC’s history, while also serving as a campus welcome center.

It will allow the McGoogan Library of Medicine to take previously hidden prized collections, artifacts, archives and rare books and showcase them to the public.

The $26 million construction project includes construction of the Wigton Heritage Center and renovation of Wittson Hall.

The two buildings will connect.

The project will be completed in 2021.
