After a decade of planning, seven years of fundraising and eleven months of construction, the Krueger Center opened on March 5th 2014. Nearly 2,600 donors contributed over $14.9 million to create a state-of-the-art facility for science and mathematics at Union College.
Fifty-nine percent of Union College students major in fields in or closely related to mathematics and the sciences, and the new 57,000 square foot facility gives those programs room to grow and thrive. The building includes:
- A 126-seat amphitheater
- Two configurable classrooms for lecture or team learning
- Two combination biology lab/lecture spaces
- Five dedicated biology teaching laboratories
- Five chemistry teaching laboratories.
- Two combination lab/lecture spaces for physics and engineering
- One teaching laboratory for modern physics
- Eight research labs for faculty and students to engage in personal research projects
- Four student commons and study spaces
- Fourteen faculty offices designed for teacher and student interactions such as advising and tutoring
- Dedicated work areas for student assistants
