A highly visible destination for the entire College, the ISC will be where faculty and students, regardless of discipline, come together as members of a thriving community.
PUTTING SCIENCE ON DISPLAY #
The ISC will take the fields of biology, computer science, and environmental science out from behind closed doors. Glass-walled labs and conference rooms will put scientific activity on display, stimulating interest and participation.
AN IDEAL HOME #
The ISC will house the IDEAL Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. IDEAL brings together students, faculty, and external partners to develop enterprising solutions to real-world problems. A large multi-use area anchored by a flexible maker space, the new headquarters for IDEAL will be a locus of innovation that will harness learning across Lafayette to solve problems far beyond it.
CAMPUS CONNECTOR #
With a physical link to neighboring Acopian Engineering Center, the ISC will enhance the synergy among STEM disciplines by offering smart resources with broad applications, such as a cutting-edge data imaging facility. Meanwhile, general-purpose classrooms, a welcoming café, indoor and outdoor study nooks, and gathering spaces for events will beckon students and faculty from across the campus.
