New $40 Million Center for Science and Business Ushers in Cutting-Edge Learning at Monmouth College
Date:5/3/2013

Monmouth, Illinois (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

At the heart of the picturesque, 106-year-old campus of Monmouth College is the new $40 million Center for Science and Business, a 138,000-sq.-ft. building that integrates science and business in a way that will provide unique learning and teaching opportunities for students and faculty.

The Center will be formally dedicated with a ceremony on May 10 at 3 p.m. with veteran WGN Radio agribusiness reporter Orion Samuelson providing the keynote address.

“Monmouth College has audacious goals,” said President Mauri Ditzler. “We expect that the Center for Science and Business is going to produce graduates who will change the world. It seems entirely appropriate that our keynote speaker Orion Samuelson’s recent autobiography is titled ‘You Can’t Dream Big Enough,’ and that he has also happened to spend his career at the intersection of science and business.”

The Center for Science and Business is the first new building totally dedicated to academics to be built on campus in four decades and is now the College’s largest structure. Students will begin taking classes in the Center at the start of the fall semester in August.

The design of the building was driven by the belief that an education for the 21st century must highlight the integration of knowledge, and that excellent colleges go beyond offering good courses by helping students understand how all their courses fit together.

“When we designed our building, we didn’t want to focus on intersections, such as having biology next to chemistry, and where the two departments touch, that’s biochemistry,” Ditzler said. “We wanted to get all the students and faculty in the building to mix – not just a few. That’s why we put in the Great Room, which will provide what I like to call ‘serendipitous learning spaces’ – places where students and faculty will casually and accidentally interact.”
