Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Clinical Excellence Building


Located on the former Center for Persons with Disabilities property, the new Sorenson Center for Clinical Excellence will be complete in March 2018. The four-story, 100,000 square foot building is divided into two wings, connected by transparent bridges with an open-air courtyard between. Integration of the academic, research, and clinical service spaces together in one building will enable onsite clinical training for students, facilitate interdisciplinary research among faculty and clinicians, and improve comprehensive clinical services for clients across Utah and the region.
