I'm happy to share that another tour has been scheduled for next week! We'll be visiting the new Integrated Sciences Building on Monday, May 24th @ 9:10. Stephen Ball, the facilities manager of the College of Natural Sciences will be bringing us around the building.
The College of Natural Sciences incorporates the life, environmental, computational, and physical sciences along with math on campus. This area of the University, also helps to uphold the Land Grant Mission for UMass, the state, and the country. The College of Natural Sciences is home to around 6,000 Undergraduate students at UMass Amherst and is the largest recipient of grant funding on campus.
The Integrated Sciences Building is one of the physical buildings on campus used by the College of Natural Sciences. This facility was recently completed and now holds: all undergraduate teaching labs, life science labs, research lab space, a computer resource center, a 300 seat auditorium along with faculty and staff office space.
I look forward to having the opportunity to take and post pictures of this facility to share! I will also be sharing information regarding the planned expansion of the Integrated Sciences Building and what it will hold.
