A significant milestone has been reached in the construction of the new Nursing and Instructional Building (NIB) on the UNC Greensboro campus – the project has surpassed the halfway mark in the timeline for completion.

This achievement was highlighted by a recent visit to the site by UNC Greensboro Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr.

“It’s gratifying to see our vision for ‘Giant Steps’ continue to become a reality,” said Chancellor Gilliam. “The campus can feel the momentum from the actions we are taking and the investments we are making, which will help define UNC Greensboro for generations to come. This facility is impressive in every way, from state-of-the-art labs, collaborative learning spaces, the latest technology for our students and faculty, and sustainable construction. The transformation of the UNC Greensboro campus is well underway, and we’re just getting started.”

The 180,000-square-foot facility was made possible thanks to state funds from the Connect NC Bond, which was passed by North Carolina voters in the spring of 2016.
