New Foundational Sciences 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 is the new home for the Departments of Biology and Chemistry and opened in 2021.

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