EAST LANSING —  Michigan State University is planning a new building that's designed to bolster the university's efforts to support growth in STEM-related fields with research.

The school's Board of Trustees on Friday gave the university the go-ahead to proceed with construction of the Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building. The project is expected to cost about $100 million. Construction starts in August and is projected to be finished in August 2019.

The 170,000-square-foot facility will play a key role in support of MSU's Global Impact Initiative and encourage research related to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields, known as STEM.

The new building will be on the south side of campus. It's planned to be five stories and will include laboratories, computational research space and offices.
