Dixie State plans expansion, new facilities

DSU is taking steps toward adding new facilities to its campus. Crews are scheduled to break ground by the end of the year on the Burns Arena north office addition. Slated for completion in August 2015, the two-story addition to the university’s basketball complex will house approximately 70 faculty and staff offices.

The currently open space north of Hansen Stadium will become the home of the Physical Education and Student Wellness Center. The proposed $29 million facility will include specialized classrooms, clinic spaces, gymnasiums, and physical education labs needed to support future academic programs in health and human performance. The program accompanying this facility will offer tracks in education, kinesiology/exercise science, and health promotion and wellness.

Additionally, Dixie Regional Medical Center has agreed to extend and expand its sports medicine partnership with the university in conjunction with the completion of the Wellness Center. St. George News
