Scripps College is continuing construction of a new wing of
faculty offices at the east end of the Bette Cree Edwards Humanities Building. According to Jim Steet, the superintendent of construction, the
project has been on schedule with no setbacks. “End of June, first of July is what we’re shooting for,” he said of the deadline. Originally constructed in 1968, the building was fashioned for teaching
the interdisciplinary Humanities Program, according to Scripps’ website. The building currently includes classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium, 12 faculty
offices, and the Clark Humanities Building.
