UI celebrates opening of new Psychological and Brain Sciences Building

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Iowa has a permanent home.

At a ceremony on Jan. 24, UI President J. Bruce Harreld joined deans, faculty, and donors to celebrate the official opening of a building that will transform teaching and research, and will position the department to better prepare students for learning modern psychology and finding jobs in the field.

Harreld said the building, located as a gateway to the east side of campus at Gilbert Steet and Iowa Avenue, will enhance students' academic experience, increase the research capacity and success of faculty and staff, and help recruit more talent to the university.

"It's about all of us coming together-to make better science, greater strides for our students, and actually lifting ourselves to what is possible as opposed to being stuck in what is impossible," Harreld said.

The building is the first centralized home for the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, which is the seventh-oldest psychology department in the United States and has been a leader in teaching and research for nearly 130 years.
