Building a campus worthy of an innovation hub

In conjunction with Rieth Jones Advisors, a nationally renowned development firm, The University of Alabama in Huntsville is proposing to build a 58-acre annex to expand its influence in the booming center of innovation that the greater Huntsville region has become. This development will be designed to inspire and foster relationships among students, faculty, industry, and the community; to broaden the scope of UAH’s academic innovation; and to recruit new talent.
