Suffolk University breaks ground on new academic building on 20 Somerset St.

Suffolk University held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday for a new academic building at Boston’s 20 Somerset St. with Mayor Thomas M. Menino among the dignitaries in attendance.

Designed by NBBJ, an architecture firm with an office in Boston, the 10-story building will hold flexible classrooms that look to support active learning. Many of the classrooms will be set aside for so-called STEM education. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.
