The need for medical professionals around the country continues to grow, and The University of St. Thomas is now better equipped than ever to meet increasing demand for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) degree programs. Following a surge in STEM majors from 2010-2015, the reintroduction of its nursing program in 2012, and membership as a Texas Medical Center institution, the UST community knew it needed an upgraded science center. Following a $47 million renovation, the new Center for Science and Health Professions opened this year, paving the way for hands-on learning with over 100,000 square-feet of modern lab space and classrooms.
