New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey will be among the participants at a brick laying ceremony at Montclair State University on Monday, Oct. 27, at 10 a.m. for an $80 million academic building, the largest building in the University's history.
The 270,000-square-foot building will house the University's nationally recognized College of Education and Human Services, including the ADP Center for Teacher Preparation and Learning Technologies. It will also contain more than 60 state-of-the-art classrooms, lecture halls, and specialized laboratories as well as the University's technology hub and a multi-media conference center.
"Quality teaching is the essence, the heart and soul, of a Montclair State University education," said Dr. Susan A. Cole, University president. "This extraordinary new building will provide an instrument for teaching second to none, where we will be able to offer the highest quality instruction for decades to come."
Joining Governor McGreevey in the brick laying ceremony will be Congressmen Bill Pascrell, Donald Payne, and Steve Rothman; Department of Education Commissioner William Librera; and Josh Weston, honorary chairman of ADP.
