LINCOLN, NE — At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Mabel Lee Hall is part of a connected three-building complex that serves as the City Campus home of the College of Education and Human Sciences (CEHS).

The new design by Sasaki, in partnership with Sinclair Hille Architects of Lincoln, will deliver a dedicated, new, technologically-robust building customized to meet the evolving needs of students learning the latest pedagogical approaches. The building recently topped off, reaching a new milestone.

“It’s very special to gather to mark this significant milestone in the construction of our new home,” said Sherri Jones, Dean of CEHS. “I’m so thankful to all those who have helped us reach this point, including former CEHS Deans Marjorie Kostelnik and Beth Doll.”

In addition to creating flexible classroom spaces, the design team studied a series of organizational strategies to make conducive collaborative interactions between the faculty, students, and visitors at Mabel Lee Hall.

The project is currently under construction, with substantial completion expected in May 2022.
