The $10 million, 28,500-square-foot Center will incorporate today's most innovative teaching and research technologies into an open, contemporary facility.
The Center's main entrance on the west side of the campus will serve as the gateway to the College's busy quad.
The Center will be the home of the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT), where fully integrated, campus-wide discovery and applied research happen every day.
With two stories of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the first-floor lobby will offer students and visitors alike an airy, sun-lit gathering space.
Another special gathering place will be the second-floor lounge. Large windows will provide an impressive, elevated view of the campus quad and will flood the lounge with natural light.
All laboratories in the Center — whether based in Computer Science or in Life Science — will allow inquiry and discovery, and demonstrate that
careers in STEM are highly achievable for students with LD.
The Center will serve faculty and students each day and into the evenings.
At the end of Spring 2014, a display was added to campus that features the materials that will be used in the construction of the STI Center.
Students were invited to leave their handprints in the concrete footing of the display.
