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

nt for more than seven years, the project began to take shape in 2007 with a major gift from the Edward Arthur Mellinger Educational Foundation, which funded the development of building plans by the award-winning international architectural firm Burt Hill, a specialist in scientific and academic facilities. Ground was broken in the summer of 2011 and construction has continued steadily over the ensuing months.

In December, a time capsule was placed in a wall near the building’s main entrance. Inside the capsule were items from each of the nine majors that will be housed inside the new building – accounting, biology, biochemistry, biopsychology, business, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, physics and psychology – as well as other official college documents.

At the May 10 dedication, students representing each of the disciplines that will be housed in the Center will deposit soil samples into containers, to be used in the landscaping of the grounds. The samples were collected in 2011 from the hometowns of members of the current sophomore class, who presented them on the day of the building’s cornerstone dedication that year.

The opening of the Center for Science and Business symbolizes the central nature of science and business in Monmouth College’s curriculum and reflects the College’s vision to provide a space that will produce graduates who are well prepared for success in a global economy.

“We want our business students to leave here with a real knowledge of what’s happening on the cutting edge of science,” Ditzler said. “We want them to be comfortable talking to science students. We want them to form contacts they will use later in life. And the reverse – we want our science students to be comfortable with ideas of business.”
