The University of Northern Iowa is planning to build a seven million-dollar sports medicine complex. UNI Athletic Director Rick Hartzell says the facility is for the entire student body. The building will include a new training facility for the school’s athletic teams that’ll be run in conjunction with a local sports/medical clinic. The facility will also have office space for some health and physical education programs. Hartzell says the facility will help students who’re participating in athletics, and those who’re studying sports medicine. UNI has received a 500-thousand dollar donation from Des Moines businessman Dick Jacobsen toward the facility. Hartzell says he needs to raise another three million dollars. Hartzell says the new facility would be built north of the UNI-Dome.
