MSU Billings’ location in the heart of Montana’s largest medical corridor provides exceptional access to integrated learning for health professions and science students. It affords an exceptional opportunity for employment upon graduation in diverse medical and science-related fields. Over 80% of the graduates work and remain in Montana, and over 50% remain in the Billings area, serving the region.
The current building was constructed in 1947 and needed renovation to accommodate the number of students using the facility, their educational needs, and accommodating sufficient equipment needs and modern technology. Additionally, the structure will be expanded to house the growing College of Health Professions and Science. The building will house a unique interdisciplinary opportunity for students. Today’s students will be tomorrow’s workforce serving the healthcare, energy, agri-business, and preventative health fields — and many others.
The construction of the Yellowstone Science and Health Building is essential to meeting the needs of the region. The renovated building will allow MSU Billings to serve students for another half-century, which serves all of us.
