On Oct. 2, 2015 Washington University formally dedicated the Thomas and Jennifer Hillman Hall.
At approximately 105,000 square feet, Hillman Hall more than doubles the Brown School’s teaching, research, and program space. Targeted for LEED Platinum certification, the building design emphasizes health and wellness, diversity, energy efficiency, and environmental sustainability.
The new building includes the Seigle Suite for the Institute for Public Health. This is the Institute’s second location, providing a presence on the Danforth Campus, in addition to our current space at the School of Medicine.
“Our mission has always been to harness the strengths of the entire university to address the complex health issues and health disparities facing the St. Louis region and the world,” said William G. Powderly, MD, the J. William Campbell Professor of Medicine, co-director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine and director of the Institute for Public Health.
“It’s exciting to expand our reach to include a physical location on the Danforth Campus, which will better enable us to connect to faculty, staff, students, and the broader community working to solve public health challenges,” Powderly said.
