Building plans include St. Paul campus

New building projects approved by the state legislature last spring will mean dramatic changes to the St. Paul campus in the coming years. Legislators and the governor approved funding for a new bee research lab on campus; a new Bell Museum and Planetarium; improvements to the Aquatic Invasive Species research lab, as well as funding for maintenance on other campus buildings. All three projects currently are in the planning and design stage, with ground expected to be broken in 2015.
