Slated for a 2010 opening on FAU’s Boca Raton Campus,
Innovation Village, a multi-use complex, will offer unique
opportunities for living, learning, dining, shopping and building

complex will be an open-air, 30,000-seat football

and traditions of Bowl Sub Division football come alive at
FAU,” said President Brogan.
“A top priority
at this university is to provide programs and places that will
heighten the traditional university experience for our students and
all members of the FAU community.|
