Central Michigan University officials will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new downtown Saginaw hub at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19.
University officials now operate the Innovation and Outreach Hub in the SVRC building, 203 S. Washington. The office is housed in the CMURC (Central Michigan University Research Corporation) suite on the facility’s second floor.
CMU officials said the Innovation and Outreach Hub will provide “a base of operations” for college representatives who engage with business and civic leaders in the downtown district. CMU students enrolled online also can use the office space as a collaborative space, officials said.
CMU President Bob Davies and U.S. House Rep. Dan Kildee are among the attendees planning to attend the Thursday ribbon-cutting event.
The university has maintained a presence in downtown Saginaw via the CMU College of Medicine facility since 2015.
