CIS’s initial model of 200,000 square feet represents a 43% increase over the total science space around campus now. It will house 23 teaching and 46 research labs, 22 instrumen- tation rooms, 41 project and preparation spaces, five tech- nology suites, 15 classrooms and meeting rooms, as well as social, display, and other public areas. With $100 million es- timated for construction and furnishing, the funding strategy will likely include gifts and a $15 million bond issue; a $15 million operating endowment is also planned. On the second floor, for example, Kellogg describes an interdisciplinary grouping “we’re calling biomolecular science, a facility that will help us better investigate issues like fetal alcohol syndrome, neurological disease, and cutting-edge genetics.” Another group is focused on subjects like obesity, nutrition, and environmental contaminants.


Frederick says flexible layouts will create “individualized learning microenvironments. A student and professor can talk at a table, while behind them several students work on com- puter modeling. Or we might have a climate-change study next door to genetic mutation research. Students can easily see and discuss each other’s work.” She predicts that the fa- cility “will become one of the creative hubs for the campus.”
