Salus University’s Elkins Park campus is buzzing with construction activity as renovations and remodels begin. The redesign of the University’s traditional library is currently underway, which will reveal a technology-focused Learning Resource Center come November 2016. Groundbreaking for the renovated space occurred late July. Designed to align with the growing needs of students, the Learning Resource Center will a help desk/service center, large wood tables, group study areas, a 50-person classroom and a small café.

For convenience purposes, the library and computer lab have been temporarily relocated to the second floor of the Hafter Student Center during these renovations.

The Clinical Skills Lab overhaul project is set to begin in January 2017, which will feature state-of-the-art ophthalmic equipment and electronic health record capabilities in order to prepare the University’s optometry students for patient care at The Eye Institute. Other prominent upgrades include 34 fully equipped optometric bays, video/camera slit lamps for demonstration, and mounted live feed video cameras for integrated instruction. 

Keeping in line with the University’s mission and strategic plan, each renovation is intended to provide Salus students with an optimum learning experience in a progressive atmosphere as technology rapidly changes. New, expanded, and renovated facilities are a central priority of the University, as we strive to transform into a technology-rich academic hub for professional development, multidisciplinary study, and a collaborative community resource.
