The 21st century has brought about dramatic improvements in computing and telecommunications. These incredible advances in technology have allowed Fort Hays State University to transform as an institution of higher education.

Unlike any other time at Fort Hays State, there was a need and an opportunity to develop a new breed of “academic space” to exploit the potential of virtual learning environments; experience-based education; cultural enrichment; and new approaches to discovery, research and creativity.

The new Hammond Hall uses the communications infrastructure of the 21st century to link three critical offices throughout Fort Hays State University: (1) the Department of Informatics; (2) the Virtual College; and (3) the Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning Technologies (CTELT).

Formerly known as the Center for Networked Learning, this 36,000 square foot facility was completed just in time for the start of the fall 2014 semester.

The Department of Informatics occupies the first floor and its building needs are designed around three primary digital learning areas: computer, labs, a telecommunication lab, and video/audio labs. The Virtual College and CTELT offices occupy the second floor, which houses the production and technological-delivery of faculty's course content. In addition, the second floor functions as a demonstration center for new and advanced technologies, and serves as a test-site for instruction applications of these technologies.




If you believe in the future of Fort Hays State University and the people and ideas that encompass a building unlike any other on FHSU's campus, please consider leaving a legacy in the new Hammond Hall! Opportunities are still available for alumni and friends to partner with Fort Hays State in this unique and forward-thinking facility.

As a donor, you can have your name attached to a space within Hammond Hall.
