Title: STEM Infrastructure Improvement Wilson-Booker Science Building (WBSB)

Abstract

The Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is housed in the Wilson-Booker Science Building (WBSB) which previously consisted of six classrooms, a lecture room, three biology laboratories, one physics laboratory, one chemistry laboratory, one research laboratory, and three computer laboratories. However, due to rapid expansion in STEM majors, there was a dire need for more classroom and laboratory space to accommodate this expansion. Further, since the College started integrating research into the curriculum in 2004 in order to keep pace with the national trend in science education, it has become apparent that one small research laboratory that accommodates 10 students will not keep pace with the growing needs of the new students interested in research. Therefore , it became imperative to add another research laboratory to augment the existing one. Thus, the new instrumentation/Research Laboratory will provide space for the new equipment and research space for an additional 8 - 10 students. In addition, the new WBSB wing also houses a Biochemisty/Molecular Biology Laboratory, an Organic Chemistry laboratory, an Animal Laboratory, a Seminar Room, two spacious classrooms, and 3 Faculty Offices. The impact of the new facility will be far-reaching.
