May 14, 2014 – The College of Health and Human Services is expanding its services, with the groundbreaking of the new Physical Therapy and Sport Administration building. The new 22,000 square foot facility, located near the North Gym and Aquatics Center, will serve as the main location for the Physical Therapy Department and various athletic coaches.

“Consolidating the Physical Therapy Department’s administrative and faculty offices will provide more convenient access to the research and teaching laboratories, and more importantly, it will provide improved communication and collaboration between faculty and the students they serve,” said Dr. Jody Hironaka-Juteau, interim dean of the College of Health and Human Services.

Dr. Joseph I. Castro, president of Fresno State, said the sports administration portion of the building will foster a collaborative environment for academic and athletic facility users.

Construction is slated to be completed by July 2015.
