The facility is planned to enhance interprofessional collaboration, allowing all program areas—both undergraduate and graduate—to strengthen academic and public service programs. One of the central goals is to facilitate teaching and learning through the use of technology and flexible spaces offering a variety of classroom delivery options.

These include: anatomy & physiology, hydrostatic, athletic training, microbiology, biochemistry,  neuromuscular, biomechanics, occupational/physical training, environmental chamber research, sports psychology & motor learning, food sciences & food systems, vascular biology and autonomic, human cadaver, vascular research and human performance.
