School of Packaging Building Renovation
Phase 1 Goal: $10 million Raised: $10 million
The MSU School of Packaging was the first school of packaging in the United States and the largest packaging program in the country. It is the only school that offers a Ph.D. program. The Packaging Building was last updated in 1986 and is in need of renovation.
To attract the next generation of faculty, it is imperative that our academic spaces and laboratories reflect what we are – the top school in packaging.
