A new Caruth Hall will provide a home for the Caruth Institute for Engineering Education, dedicated to innovative math and science programs and curricula for students from kindergarten through college. A grant from the Caruth Foundation of Communities Foundation of Texas provided the seed money for the new building. The second engineering building at SMU to be constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Standards, Caruth Hall will become the third engineering facility built at SMU in the past five years, providing much-needed new and improved space for teaching, research and innovation. It will serve as the gateway to SMU’s new east quadrangle, which includes the Embrey Engineering Building, Junkins Engineering Building and Blanton Student Services Building.
