Everett L. Marshall Building


Building Name
Everett L. Marshall Building
Architects designed the new building for the College of Health and Human Services to be environmentally friendly. Tables are made of soybeans, newspapers, and wooden pallets. Chairs and fabrics are made from recycled pop bottles; floors from straw cork, recycled tires and bamboo; ceiling tiles inhibit harmful molds; and low-odor, solvent-free paints help ensure air quality. Following the principles of universal design, the building has wider doors and adjustable desks among other modifications to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, size or disability can be comfortable in the building. The building was funded by state and university matching funds, including a donation from Professor Emeritus Everett L. Marshall.
