New Foundational Science Building

In 2019, the College of Sciences and Humanities broke ground on $87.5 million Foundational Sciences Building to meet the growing demand for STEM professionals. This state-of-the-art building will be the new home for the Departments of Biology and Chemistry.

Designed by the architecture firm RATIO, the 206,500 square-foot building will feature six classrooms, 28 teaching and 44 research laboratories, a research library, conference rooms, computer labs, collaborative space, and faculty offices. Shared space, such as Active Learning Classrooms and Suites for both Imaging and Microscopy will allow students to experience research collaboration much like they will experience as a professional.

The building is set to open in 2021.
