Scripps Pitzer Science Center hero image

Project Features

When fully funded, the new center will provide:

  • Teaching labs and prep spaces for study in biology, physics, chemistry, environmental science, and interdisciplinary courses
  • Student-faculty collaboration spaces, including meeting rooms, student lounges, study niches, and a computer lab
  • Outdoor courtyards and plazas
  • New office spaces for faculty and laboratory coordinators
  • A rooftop greenhouse

The renovated facility will provide:

  • New and renovated faculty research labs
  • Renovated core research facilities
  • A new cold room for more efficient and diverse research in biology and neuroscience
  • The completed initiative will also reduce class sizes and the ratio of students to faculty, increase the number of tenure-track faculty, expand courses and co-curricular offerings, and diversify the face of STEM fields.

Thanks to several generous donors, the College is poised to break ground on this transformational initiative. However, additional support is needed.

“We train students to be interdisciplinary problem-solvers and to do things that benefit mankind. Science for the good of the world.” – Ulysses J. Sofia, dean of W.M. Keck Science Department

Advancing science

We graduate the highest percentage of women baccalaureates from small to mid-sized colleges who earn PhDs in biology/life science

Accelerating representation

We confer more STEM degrees than any other women's college in the United States
