Our Progress. Our Promise.

In August 2016, Sampson Hall reopened as the Stephens College Center for Health Sciences, a state-of-the-art teaching facility. The completely renovated building, which was built in 1947, houses the College’s Master of Physician Assistant Studies program.

The center’s first floor has been named the Phyllis Southall Henigson Foyer and Symposia Center in honor of Phyllis Southall Henigson ’54, who donated $1 million to help launch the new physician assistant program. The center features an advanced anatomy lab; high-tech classrooms; and exam rooms and observation rooms with the latest in virtual classroom technology to provide real-world learning experiences. Lab and classroom spaces support cutting-edge curriculum and allow for collaboration among students and faculty. Additional naming opportunities continue to be available.
