WWU breaks ground on Kaiser Borsari Hall

Saturday, May 20 was the official groundbreaking for Kaiser Borsari Hall, Western’s new electrical and computer engineering, energy science, and computer science building. The new building will be located east of the Communications Facility and connected by a sky bridge to maximize program efficiencies and increase collaboration opportunities. At approximately 54,000 square feet, it will provide state-of-the-art teaching spaces and experiential learning environments, along with teaching labs, learning research labs, active learning classrooms, collaborative space, and academic administrative space.

Kaiser Borsari Hall is being funded through both public and private funds and is planned as an innovative hub for collaboration, where industry experts, faculty, and students come together to co-create technology and engineering solutions for today and tomorrow. It has been named for Fred Kaiser and Grace Borsari, longtime friends and champions of Western, who have committed a $10 million lead gift to the total project cost of $73.6 million.
