“Our university will mark its 133rd year in 2023-24, but that will be far from the only thing we will celebrate,” said Martin. “Visitors to our campuses and satellite locations in East Greensboro will see numerous changes this year, including construction projects that will change the face of our university.”
A&T has more than $350 million in projects on the table this year, including a new $64 million residential complex and a $13 million urban community food processing complex at the University Education and Research Farm. University officials will break ground on both projects this fall.
Three projects at the university’s Gateway Research Park – South Campus will also take shape in 2023-24: a $38 million Community Education Center in collaboration with Guilford County Schools, a $110 million data analytics “Dream Center” in collaboration with Impact Data, and a $1.5 million biotechnology training center with Merck pharmaceutical corporation.
