Lamar University is expanding and creating a gateway to campus from the south. At the corner of Rolfe Christopher Drive and Jim Gilligan Way, the Wayne A. Reaud Building will be on the northwest corner of the intersection (on the right) and the Center for Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship will be on the northeast corner (left).

Wayne A. Reaud Building

The Wayne A. Reaud Building will house the administration offices of the university as well as the Reaud Honors College that is one of the oldest and largest programs in the state. The building will also be the new home for Lamar University’s Human Resources Department, the Office of Information Technology, the Office of Institutional Research and Reporting and also a new event center.

Center for Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship

The Center for Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship, or CICE, is a partnership between our colleges of business and engineering and the Southeast Texas business community. The facility is a conduit for industry and university interaction, including projects, on-going research, student experiential learning, special events and training. It will also house the Small Business Development Center. There will be a heavy emphasis on student development and training in order to prepare our students by exposing them to real-world projects. New businesses are technology-focused, providing products and services for existing and future industry.
