On This Day in IUPUI History: July 29, 1970

July 29, 1970

On this day, construction of a new facility for the IU School of Nursing began on the IUPUI campus. Long housed in the Ball Residence Hall, the IU Training School for Nurses, later called the IU School of Nursing, had grown dramatically under the dynamic leadership of dean Emily Holmquist. The new building allowed for an expansion of both graduate and undergraduate programs in the school. Construction continued for several years and the School of Nursing building opened in 1973.
