Construction is in progress, and anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2006. Paving of the drive and parking lots is anticipated to be completed by the fall of 2007.

JORDAN VALLEY INNOVATION CENTER (JVIC)
The former Missouri Farmer�s Association milling facility was acquired from the City of Springfield to be transformed into a collaborative research center focused on nano-technology and bio research. The JVIC facility is being renovated using federal grant funds to accommodate research space requirements of public and private tenant organizations. Construction is in progress; occupancy is anticipated in the spring of 2007.

JQH ARENA
A new arena will be constructed to accommodate the Bears and Lady Bears basketball teams and to serve as a site for concerts and other University and community events. The arena will seat 11,000 and will include many amenities not available in Hammons Student Center. Groundbreaking is scheduled to occur in December 2006. The arena is scheduled to be open in the fall of 2008.

FACILITY REUTILIZATION PROGRAM (FREUP) - PHASE l
The goal to improve existing academic facilities is the theme of the multi-phased Facilities Reutilization Plan (FREUP). The first phase of a four-phase FREUP program contributes to the University�s goal of consolidating colleges geographically. Siceluff Hall will be vacated to initiate a series of planned space reallocations. Siceluff Hall, Kings Street Annex, Temple Hall and Hammons Student Center will be renovated to accommodate academic and administrative requirements and enhance the programmatic mission of updating buildings with deferred maintenance issues.

OZARKS PUBLIC HEALTH AND LIFE SCIENCE CENTER
This new facility, located on the west mall between Kemper Hall and Glass Hall, will be an interdisciplinary science center for conducting research and providing undergraduate and graduate educational programs that address public health and life science issues. Its applied research and educational programs will be guided by regional and state needs, and the work within the Center will involve collaborations with government, education, healthcare, business, and community service organizations. The research made possible by this facility is in concert with the public affairs mission of Missouri State University.

PUMMILL HALL/ HILL HALL RENOVATION
FACILITY REUTILIZATION PROGRAM (FREUP) - PHASE ll

In FREUP Phase ll, the exterior of Pummill Hall will be upgraded to improve energy efficiency. Classrooms, academic support areas and offices within both Pummill Hall and Hill Hall will be renovated to provide a professional learning environment for the students.

UNIVERSITY RECREATION CENTER
This student-focused initiative proposes to create a �beacon� in the center of the campus core for students to participate in fitness activities, enjoy recreation opportunities or learn about other aspects of wellness. A central campus location is preferred in close proximity to residence halls, PSU and multiple shuttle routes, without eliminating needed parking spaces or depleting limited existing green space. This Center will serve as a vital resource in support of the University�s new Wellness initiative. Planning is underway. McDonald Arena has been targeted as the future home of the University Recreation Center.
