The life sciences are increasingly important to understanding the issues facing today's world. Research is changing rapidly, and our facilities must be suited to the demands of modern lab science. We have an extraordinary opportunity to re-define how the life sciences are taught in a liberal arts education.
The arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences all approach issues from different perspectives. This diversity strengthens the education we provide our students. The quantitative focus of the sciences is a critical component of our academic excellence.
We are investing in a new $25 million-plus Science Center at New London Hall that will foster student-faculty collaborations, more science research and interdisciplinary learning. In this way, we are ensuring that our graduates can contribute to society's most critical decisions, whether as science and technology professionals or as engaged, informed citizens.
