This chapter shows how construction and renovation continued on schedule even after the economic collapse of 2008 and subsequent budget cuts because of the foresight of using the bond referendum as a funding mechanism. The author was able to preside over the dedication of several new buildings, including the North Carolina Botanical Garden Education Center, the Genetic Medicine Research Building, Taylor residence hall, and new Venable and Murray halls. The author was particularly proud of that last dedication because those two new buildings made the Science Complex envisioned in the campus master plan a bricks and mortar reality. Joining with the recently completed Chapman Hall, Caudill Labs and Sitterson and Brooks Halls and flanked by the older Kenan and Morehead Labs, new Venable and Murray showed UNC's determination to create an environment worthy of the talented faculty and researchers they aimed to attract and keep there.
