CHSU Breaks Ground On New Campus in Clovis

 

On May 9, 2018, California Health Sciences University (CHSU) made history by breaking ground on their new campus in Clovis. An official Groundbreaking Ceremony was held at the new campus site located on the 2500 block of Alluvial Avenue, near Temperance and Highway 168. Situated within the Clovis Research and Technology Park, the new campus will be built on approximately 70 acres.

The event was attended by over 200 guests and included the CHSU founding family – Farid, Farshid and Darius Assemi; Board of Trustees Chairperson, Dr. John Welty; City of Clovis Mayor, Bob Whalen; Fresno County Supervisor, Nathan Magsig; and Assemblyman Jim Patterson representative, Ian Coolbear.

The University unveiled the design concepts for their first building to be constructed, which will be for the CHSU proposed College of Osteopathic Medicine.

“We have launched the CHSU proposed College of Osteopathic Medicine and once the accreditation process has successfully been completed, we hope to matriculate our first class of students in fall 2020,” stated CHSU President, Florence T. Dunn.

The 90,000 square-foot building will be three-stories and will feature a state-of-the-art simulation center, osteopathic skills lab, a large classroom with capacity for 300 students, and a second classroom with 200 student capacity. The new building will also include a library, student lounge with ample study spaces, faculty offices, and professional kitchen for educating students and the community about health meal preparation.

In the future, other building constructed on the new campus will include labs, classrooms, a student center, a library, an auditorium, along with support buildings.

University officials also announced their plans to expand to up to 10 colleges.

The University has received overwhelming community support from local leaders in education, hospital administration, the medical profession, public officials, and the business community and looks forward to the construction of the new campus.
