Union University breaks ground on new academic building

JACKSON, Tenn. — Union University officially broke ground on a new academic building Friday.

A large number of people attended the ceremony on the great lawn between White Hall and Pleasant Plains.

The new academic building will house the McAfee School of Business and the Departments of Engineering and Computer Science.

“It is always exciting to have a new facility under construction on campus,” said Tim Ellsworth, Associate VP for University Communications. “It has been a decade since we broke ground on a building previously. It is a joy to see the campus developed, and to see a building going up that will be so meaningful for students and their education.”

Union University is expecting to complete the building by Fall 2024.
