The 40k SF Rafael Vinol-designed building, slated for completion in two and a half years, is being developed by the EMK Institute and UMass, adjacent to the JFK Library.

Its academic and research programs will complement those offered by UMass and the McCormack Graduate School for Policy and Global Studies.
