Title
Valk Center
Description
Completed in 1970 and named for Donald N. Valk, long-time chair of the Department of Technology, the building during 1993 became the home of the Department of Agricultural Sciences following the closing of the Department of Technology. Facilities within the building include faculty offices, lecture rooms, a computer laboratory, and laboratories for plant science, animal science and soil science. The lower level of Valk used formerly for warehouse storage was renovated in 2008-2009. Enhancements include new building entries, exterior stairwells, classrooms, faculty offices, student gathering and display areas for the Department of Humanities, History, Philosophy, and Political Science. The department was renamed as the Humanities and Social Sciences Department in 2013. The School of Agriculture departed the building in 2020 and the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences assumed the entire building. Criminology, Geography, Geospatial Information Systems, and Military Science occupy the upper level, while history, political science, and philosophy offices can be found on the lower level.
