The William T. and Gail T. Weyerhaeuser Center for Health Sciences is home to the School of Occupational and Physical Therapy, and the departments of Psychology and Exercise Science. This comprehensive center enhances the intersections of knowledge between research and clinical work, fosters academic collaboration, and attracts top faculty and students to the University of Puget Sound.
An inspirational building that reflects the quality and character of the college as a whole, the center anchors the south end of campus and provides easy access to outpatient clinics and research facilities. At 42,500 square feet, the building provides the resources and flexibility needed to support new areas of study in the fields of health and behavioral sciences. Specially integrated spaces encourage cross-disciplinary interaction between the university's undergraduate departments of exercise science and psychology, graduate programs in occupational and physical therapy, and interdisciplinary program in neuroscience.
Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson/Seattle, the center conforms to the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards.
