The game-changing $45 million science and engineering facility known as ISELF throws open its doors 10:30 a.m. Aug. 21.
The grand opening, which is part of Convocation 2013, includes a program, ribbon-cutting ceremony, refreshments and tours. The program will be at the courtyard on the southwest corner of the 100,000 square-foot building.
Known formally as the Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility, ISELF will serve mostly upper-level and graduate-level science, technology, engineering, mathematics, medical technology and radiology classes.
The building, which broke ground in October 2011, goes into service fall semester.
ISELF is the final project of St. Cloud State's three-part Science Initiative. The $14.5 million addition to the Wick Science Building was completed in January 2009. The $15 million renovation of Brown Hall was finished in December 2009.
University officials say ISELF's function, collaboration, flexibility, scale and sustainability will transform how faculty work and students learn.
ISELF lab space will be temporarily allocated to interdisciplinary projects and teams of people, not permanently given to campus entities.
