Center for the Sciences & Innovation (CSI)
Inspired collaborations: undergraduates feel empowered by hands-on discovery.
Inspiring one million more STEM grads and promoting interdisciplinary thinking is critical to our nation’s future.
Inspired and empowered by innovative spaces like “the Cube,” undergraduates collaborate with peers and faculty on projects that address real-world issues like diabetes and pediatric health, aging in place, or cross-cultural communication.Advancing Mission
Our feature in Tradeline reports on how the increased focus on STEM across higher education has a pronounced impact on liberal arts colleges, typically resulting in new construction or the renovation of existing science buildings.
Senior Structural Engineer Mark Kanonik’s article, Scientific Method, explores unique structural challenges in designing Union College’s Integrated Science & Engineering Complex.
The Students Have Spoken
Our labs at Trinity University, Stanford University, The University of Scranton, among others, are recognized among the top 20 science lab facilities in the nation by The Princeton Review.
EYP’s design for the new Center for Science and Innovation Complex serves as a gateway to advanced STEM learning. Construction for the $100M makerspace begins this summer and is expected to be complete by Fall ‘21.

The faster that students get access to research, the more they’ll stay with science. Only 40% of students who come in with a declared major in science actually graduate with that major, so if we could just get 10% more of those students to stick with science, our nation wouldn’t have a shortage of people with STEM skills.
