The groundbreaking ceremony for the new home of the American Institute of Mathematics in Morgan Hill, CA was held on Thursday, May 31, 2007.

The 167,000 sq.ft. facility will incorporate a large, open meeting area, seminar rooms, a dining hall, and accommodation for visitors to the Institute. In addition, it will house the AIM library comprising a comprehensive mathematical working library, AIM's unique reprint collection, as well as other special collections.

Participating in the groundbreaking ceremony were the Honorable Jerry McNerney, 11th Congressional District of California and Mayor Steve Tate of Morgan Hill. Also present was Mr Steve Sorenson, co-founder and President of the AIM Board of Trustees, and Professor Gerald Alexanderson of Santa Clara University and Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
