Regents submit budget request to build proposed UGA Science Learning Center

A proposed Science Learning Center to be built on the University of Georgia’s South Campus is one of two major capital construction projects approved by the Board of Regents today for submission to the governor as part of the fiscal year 2015 budget request. The $44.7 million requested for design and construction of the approximately 122,500 square foot facility would provide modern, efficient and flexible space for undergraduate laboratory teaching in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math). Once completed, the project would be supplemented by $10 million in institutional funds to begin a program to modernize space where such courses are now taught in the 1960s-era Chemistry and Biological Sciences buildings, with much of that space being repurposed to support faculty research.
