Moving into the future - Leonard Hall Renovation 2023-2025

Leonard Hall and Meridian Renovation Plans

Idaho State University has received a multi-million dollar gift to renovate the College of Pharmacy’s 80-year-old Leonard Hall. The ALSAM Foundation’s $14 million gift is the largest ever one-time donation received by Idaho State, and it will fund the majority of the construction project.
The building name will remain unchanged, honoring the founding dean of the college, Eugene O Leonard. The renovation will focus on replacing research labs with new, state-of-the-art technology, add student learning spaces, and support a growing graduate program in the biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences. The project received approval from the Idaho State Board of Education in April 2022. 
The Skaggs Pharmacy Complex in Meridian will also be getting an update, beginning in December 2022.
