The new building will be dedicated to creating a sustainable environment that promotes putting science on display, community interaction, and hopes of becoming the science hub of the region.

Physical and life sciences will be offered in the building as well as a conjunction of psychology and biology, to create a neuroscience discipline.

The building is planned to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification and scheduled to be completed by July 2020.

There will be a Town Hall meeting discussing the plans that students are invited to attend on August 28th in Kendall Hall, room 207/209.
