New Campus announcement in Austin American Statesman
What: The new main campus for the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin
Where: 4701 West Gate Blvd. in South Austin, part of the Westgate Professional Center
Who: Extensive site remodeling design by Austin architectural firm Steinbomer & Associates Architects
When: Construction is expected to begin this month , with a projected completion date of April 2011.
Details: The academy has been at 2700 West Anderson Lane since it was founded in 1993. It has 204 students.
The academy's president, Dr. William Morris, said enrollment is expected to grow because the college last year became the only stand-alone, single-degree-granting school of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to win regional accreditation.
The academy is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and offers a master's-level graduate program in acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
The new and larger 19,000-square-foot site will include smart media classrooms, a student intern acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinic, a mind/body center, faculty and administrative offices, a library, student and faculty gathering spaces, study areas, an herbal medicine center, and a bookstore and retail space.
The academy already has a student intern clinic and bookstore at the new address. The clinic and bookstore on Anderson Lane will remain open after the move.
