Missouri college breaks ground on innovation campus
ST. JOSEPH (AP) - Construction began on the Northland Innovation Campus that will expand the presence of Northwest Missouri State University in the Kansas City area.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports the university broke ground Tuesday on the $20 million project for the 90,000-square-foot research and education complex.
The planned campus is a partnership between the college, the city of Gladstone and North Kansas City Schools.
Northwest was set to lease the top floor of the facility for a 10-year with an option to renew. It would offer seven undergraduate programs at the new campus, including recreation and wellness, elementary education, special education and early childhood.
