Northwest community invited to ribbon cutting, open house of renovated Martindale Hall third floor

The Northwest Missouri State University community is invited to a ribbon cutting and open house celebrating the completed renovation of Martindale Hall’s third floor.

The event will include a short program, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 13, with an open house afterward.  

The $1.3 million remodel of Martindale Hall’s 4,260-square-foot third floor includes academic laboratory spaces to support nursing, human services and school counseling programs, and faculty offices.

The third-floor renovation of the building is the first phase of long-term plans to update the entire building. The Missouri General Assembly approved $8.5 million toward the $17 million total project cost with the requirement that Northwest raise the additional $8.5 million by December 2024.

When complete, the renovation of Martindale Hall, which opened in 1926 and was last remodeled in the 1970s, will help Northwest and the School of Health Science and Wellness better align academic programs with industry needs and workforce demands. Additionally, Northwest expects to enhance its competitive edge in recruiting quality students interested in careers in the health care field while strengthening regional partnerships related to health science and wellness.
