State gives $8.3M for Military Science Center

The project will improve the academic atmosphere and provide enhanced headquarters for the corps, bolstering the abilities of instructors to keep pace with evolving instructional methods.

“The UNG Military Science Center project will allow the cadets to expand their potential, now and for years to come,” retired Col. Joseph Matthews, UNG commandant of cadets, said. “The vision for the updated facility includes space that will be on par with the caliber of leadership instruction this institution provides, flexibility to adapt to changing teaching pedagogies, increased student collaborative spaces, and proper classroom utilization for the robust education offerings UNG provides.”

This new building will be a two-story, freestanding structure adjacent to the existing Pennington Military Leadership Center. At approximately 22,500 square feet, this facility will be composed primarily of academic space including classrooms, computer labs and offices. The academic space will include a large classroom that will accommodate 100 cadets. It is designed to be reconfigured to accommodate various events and auditorium-style presentations.

“I am excited for the first step in this transformational undertaking, as the final product will provide the Corps of Cadets the technology and supporting infrastructure to continue the world-class training of our state and nation’s military leaders for generations to come,” Gooch said.
