Big plans to expand the Hall of Sciences are now underway. A two-story, 40,000-square-foot addition housing teaching and research labs and collaborative spaces will run along the south wall of the current Hall of Sciences and open onto Brothers College. “It will merge the arts and sciences in ways we’ve never been able to do before,” says President Robert Weisbuch. “It is crucial today that students comprehend what happens when science meets international relations, as with climate change, or when it meets economics, as in the pharmaceutical industry.” Ground-breaking is planned for spring 2013.—Renée Olson
