Brigham City — Funding for the new Utah State University Brigham City campus was approved during the 2014 Utah legislative session and construction plans are in the works. USU President Stan Albrecht and Tom Lee, dean of the USU-Brigham City made the annnouncment.
USU-Brigham City’s new campus will be located at 989 South Main Street next to the golf course. The campus will serve Box Elder County’s growing educational needs.
In December 2010, Utah State University purchased 40 acres of land for a potential new campus. A previous donation to USU brings the campus to 48 acres. As a land-grant university it is the institution’s commitment to enhance and increase access to higher education for residents throughout the state.
Construction of the first building is slated to begin this year and will serve as the anchor of the new campus. The approximately 50,000-square-foot building will house broadcast-capable classrooms and offices for faculty, advisers and staff. A lecture hall and large multi-purpose room will serve students and is a shared resource for Brigham City, Box Elder County and the Box Elder school district.
While the legislative funding has been approved, building contributions are still needed. In conjunction with Frank Stewart from USU’s advancement office, USU-Brigham City’s advisory board has initiated a local campaign to help fund the on-going efforts of the new site.
