The BEST Yet
The KU Edwards Campus expanded its footprint with the construction of a new Business, Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Building. The 75,000-square-foot, $25 million BEST Building will bring large growth to campus and many new opportunities to the community.
“The size, scope and flexible design of the building – and the University’s commitment to offering high-value degree programs here – ensure the Edwards Campus will become an even more valued contributor to the economic growth and development of Johnson County,” said Bob Clark, vice chancellor.
The building will consist of classrooms, a business conference center, a laboratory/faculty office component, and will enable Edwards Campus enrollment to increase by 1,000 students. Through this expansion, the Edwards Campus will strengthen its impact on the community with ten new degree programs in the BEST arena. The first program, Bachelor of Business Administration, began in spring 2010.
