April 19, 2018 - USA COM Opens New Multipurpose Room

MSBMultipurposeRoomNR.jpgThe University of South Alabama College of Medicine Dean’s Office recently opened a new multipurpose room to be used for study space, meetings and conferences.

Located on the third floor of the Medical Sciences Building, the multipurpose room features new audio-visual equipment, glass writing boards, charging stations and WebEx capabilities.

According to Dr. Mary Townsley, senior associate dean of the USA College of Medicine, supports our mission to educate, discover and serve. “This multipurpose room will likely utilize each of the mission’s domains,” she said. “Given the audiovisual capabilities, white boards and mobility of the tables, the room can be set for up to 12 small groups for educational sessions. Alternatively, the room can be set in rows for seminars or conferences focused on research. The room can also be used for virtual meetings, linking College of Medicine faculty, staff or students with external agencies or review groups.”

Dr. Townsley said prior to this renovation, the building did not have a medium-sized meeting space. “The Liaison Committee on Medical Education mandates that we provide sufficient quiet study for students,” she said. “Previously, that space was limited to the large auditoriums and some study rooms in the biomedical library. This addition expands our capacity significantly.”

Students and faculty who have fob access to the Medical Sciences Building have 24-7 access to the multipurpose room, as it is keyed on the fob system. The room can also be reserved for educational sessions or meetings related to education by contacting Kimberlee Rish at Any other event can be scheduled by contacting Marcina Lang at
