With an eye toward accommodating the aging baby boomer population, the Oregon Institute of Technology will break ground this summer on its new Oregon Center for Health Professions. Funded in part by a $10 million bond approved by the Oregon Legislature in January, the new center will increase OIT enrollment by 750 students and add 15 faculty positions. The 80,000-square-foot building has a budget of $22.5 million, with $12.5 million expected to come from private donations. “We just got another million-dollar donation,” says Denise Honzel, the center’s director. Fundraising from private donors has already reached $8 million, including money from the Jeld-Wen Foundation and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. The building is slated for completion during the first half of 2008 with a first wing opening next summer.
