The Connect NC Bond provides $21.1 million to renovate and revitalize Owen Hall and Carmichael Hall, two buildings on UNC Asheville’s campus that have been in continuous use for 37 years and 50 years respectively, with no major renovations or improvements. The project will allow UNC Asheville to rethink and reinvent these spaces so that they combine to facilitate collaboration among multiple academic disciplines across campus, giving our students a competitive advantage as they join a modern workforce dependent on innovation and flexibility across disciplines.
Carmichael Hall is a dedicated academic building that is home to UNC Asheville’s Psychology and Neuroscience program. Psychology is one of UNC Asheville’s most sought after majors and stands at the center of undergraduate research on campus, combining the rigors of pre-professional training with a critical and innovative liberal arts education. Renovations will enhance the learning environment and provide additional opportunities for collaboration across disciplines.
Demolition work in Carmichael Hall has been completed, and construction is well underway.
$6,000,000 from the Connect NC Bond passed in March 2016.
