What a great week! The Division of Innovation and Applied Research offices located at the Terracedale Building (7801 York Road) moved to 7400 York Road. While we are all sad to leave the comforts of Terracedale, the team is bursting with excitement about the new space. At 7400 York Road, all of our groups will be together including RESI, CGIS, the Business Analysis and Management Team, the IT Team, Continuing & Professional Studies, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, TU Incubator, and our Administration and Finance team.
Some of the biggest highlights on the new space include:
- Collaborative space for all of our teams to work together on joint projects.
- The Continuing & Professional Studies training center will allow students to take in-person certification courses in the areas of Business/Management, Information Technology, and Heath/Medical training.
- The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has access to meeting rooms that can better accommodate students for their academic program.
- The TU Incubator companies will benefit from expanded meeting space throughout the building.
Walking through the space this morning I had the opportunity to check out how everyone was settling into their new spaces.
Aaron Guy said that he wished “the boxes would unpack themselves.”
Christina Bell Nemphos tackled getting her computer set-up.
Laura McCoy is all settled and even thought to hang light filtering curtains.
Lisa Walker works through what seems like an endless amount of blue bins.
Jackie Gratz and Trish Roger are hard at work planning for Osher’s upcoming class schedule.
An enormous thank you to Erin Nueslein who was critical in making sure every detail was thought of throughout the move process.
We look forward to having visitors in the near future.
