November 8 ,
LINCOLN UNIVERSITY TO BREAK GROUND
FOR $40.5 MILLION
NEW SCIENCE/GENERAL CLASSROOM HIGH-TECHNOLOGY BUILDING
UNIVERSITY, PA ~ Lincoln University will hold a groundbreaking
ceremony for construction of a new Science/General Classroom
High Technology Building on November 17 at noon on the southeast
section of the campus, site of the proposed structure.
The building will cost $40.5 million, including design,
construction, furniture, fixture and equipment, and will
house the biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics and
computer science departments.
“We are excited about the construction of the building
and what it means to our students,” President Ivory
Nelson said. “It is in essence another step forward
in our efforts toward achieving excellence.”
With its brick and glass exterior,
the four-story building will feature six laboratories each
for the chemistry and biology departments. Also of
note are 100 and 60-seat lecture rooms on the first floor.
Construction of the building no
doubt will enhance Lincoln University’s new academic initiatives, particularly
its Center of Excellence in the Sciences. An outgrowth
of that initiative would be the increase of minorities pursuing
advanced degrees in the sciences, thereby increasing significantly
the number of underrepresented researchers.
“The new building has many implications for the future
of our students,” President Nelson said.
The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony.
