A New Facility
The final phase envisioned by the consulting team is the construction of a new Interdisciplinary Science Building to create a complete science precinct for greater collaborations and advanced learning and research. This building will highlight team-based interdisciplinary research and will provide a dynamic space where students can actively en-gage with the sciences. The facility would include:
- Active learning classrooms
- Laboratories for research and instruction
- An innovation center
- Collaboration and project areas
- A café / common area for informal collaboration
At the completion of this plan, 60% of the college’s space will occupy new, state-of-the-art learning and research facilities, including the transformation of 30% of existing space and reallocation of over 43,000 net square feet for alternative uses. This broad strategy will align the college’s strategic mission with its infrastructure, supporting continued growth and excellence.
