Down to a Science

A three-phase expansion and renovation of Butler's Sciences complex is underway.

The $100 million investment includes high-tech classrooms that promote learning by doing, labs that mimic the set-up at top research companies, and work spaces encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Classroom spaces will enable faculty to step away from the podium and move among students in a more hands-on approach to instruction.



  • High-tech classrooms that will promote learning by doing and will reflect the interdisciplinary nature of science
  • State-of-the-art lab spaces that mimic top research companies
  • Science Innovation Center and learning spaces designed with collaboration in mind
  • Library Learning Gateway and Collaboration Area—an inspiring, creative space
