The Kay and Harold Ronson Health and Applied Science Center
Built Today for the What’s-Next Professions of Tomorrow
With the October 13 virtual ribbon cutting for the Kay and Harold Ronson Health and Applied Science Center, Thomas Jefferson University stepped boldly into the future of higher education.
The Center is built smart for high-tech, real-world Nexus Learning and for boundary-crossing research and innovation. The LEED Silver building, which includes a green roof, is a home to the Jeff Bruner Materials Characterization Laboratory, the College of Health Professions, and the College of Rehabilitation Sciences. There’s also a 62-seat Nexus classroom and six learning hubs; collaborative breakout areas; and labs for clinical simulation, physical diagnosis, and athletic training.
The online dedication ceremony included tributes to Harold Ronson ’51 for his philanthropic leadership and his service as a trustee, culminating in the presentation of the Graham J. Littlewood III ’42 Time, Talent and Treasure Award.
Crossing lines and making connections are what Thomas Jefferson University is all about. It’s our legacy. It’s who we are and where we’re going. With the new Kay and Harold Ronson Health and Applied Sciences Center, there are no limits to what we can do together and what our students can achieve with the education we offer.
I hope this building inspires the students to chart their own course inspiring the next generation of innovators and leaders.
