Funding a New Science Center

It is the essence of St. Norbert College to embrace both faith and reason. Faith, eternal and unchanging, provides our roots. Reason, striving toward the light of new knowledge and understanding, provides our branches.

In few places can we better affirm our passion for inquiry and our quest for knowledge than in our science facilities.

The completion of the John R. Minahan Science Hall almost 50 years ago was just such an affirmation. But the world is a far different place today. The tools of scientific inquiry are new; technological change has been profound. 

Our facilities must keep pace. Through Campaign St. Norbert: Full Ahead, they will keep pace … and much more. 

A Foundation of Our Future
We will build a new center that will enable our faculty and students to work on the leading edge of science and mathematics. It will include state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for: 

  • organic and synthetic chemistry
  • geology
  • physics
  • microbiology
  • immunology
  • anatomy
  • physiology
  • robotics
  • psychology
  • and more.

The facility will be designed to support and encourage both faculty and collaborative research – the latter being among the most valuable experiences St. Norbert students can have. We will build technologically advanced classrooms and lecture halls for both mathematics and science. We will provide an environment in which faculty can fully engage students in a dynamic and immersive learning experience.

This new structure will not merely bring us into the 21st century, it will help us define it.
