A Place for Innovation

As the leading nursing research institution in Wisconsin, the School of Nursing requires an equally innovative environment that stimulates productivity, creativity, connection, focus, and well-being. Signe Skott Cooper Hall, home to Badger nursing since 2014, stands as one of the most innovative and advanced teaching and academic research facilities in nursing across the nation.

The five-story, 166,348-square-foot building is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver-certified and meets the highest current standards for green engineering and sustainability, reflecting the School’s commitment to environmental health. The copious amount of natural light and green spaces also support physical and mental well-being for students, staff, faculty, and visitors.

Cooper Hall can also adapt to the ever-evolving needs of the nursing profession and health care with its high-tech classrooms and conference rooms, dozens of research project offices, and a large, flexibly designed third and fourth floor layout that accommodates office spaces and six signature research areas.

Words alone are not enough to convey everything there is to love about Cooper Hall. Take a peek inside to learn more about what makes it a key component to the innovative teaching and research happening at the School of Nursing.
