Fogarty Hall is home to Rhode Island College’s (RIC) Life Sciences Programs. The renovation and expansion of Fogarty Hall was initiated by RIC in order to accommodate the rapidly expanding Nursing Program, and included a range of spaces such as exam rooms, fundamental labs, debrief rooms, conference rooms, student lounges, and classrooms. This state-of-the-art facility will help to prepare medical and nursing students for a rapidly advancing technological workplace. It is also to be designed to support faculty administration of the building and Life Sciences Program in terms of system flexibility, as well as through a wide range of simulation capture and assessment tools to help instructors review student progress and performance. The project is schedule for completion in 2016.
