Indiana University's trustees have selected a downtown Evansville site for a health science education and research center planned by IU's medical school and three other schools.

The Board of Trustees approved the location Friday following a recommendation by IU President Michael McRobbie.

McRobbie told a trustees committee that the downtown location would be the best of four options around Evansville for the nearly $70 million project.

The Evansville Courier & Press and WFIE-TV report that IU's full board voted unanimously for the site.

Evansville officials had pushed the location covering nearly six city blocks as a key for downtown redevelopment.

The University of Evansville, the University of Southern Indiana and Ivy Tech Community College also plan to offer programs at the center that could draw some 2,000 health care students.
