The new Science Center is moving (literally and figuratively) toward a summer 2018 opening. Last fall, as construction progressed on the building, we invited six faculty to visit the new academic spaces and reflect on the changes the new location will bring—deeper collaboration with colleagues, advanced teaching and research spaces, and much more.

We asked each professor to bring an object to the photoshoot that represented their work, to tell us what they are most looking forward to in the new Science Center, and to describe how the new building might impact future teaching and learning.
