A second need in most departments relates to upgrading facilities and developing modern space. Michigan Tech’s strategic goals of expanded research and graduate education programs require significant expansion and upgrading of campus facilities. A very special need concerns the upgrading and improvement of facilities within Chemistry, which have not been touched since their initial installation in the 1970’s. We are committed to developing green chemistry labs and research spaces for the department, steps that are likely to involve an entirely new building. Other priority needs in the college include:
- extending the Academic Office Building that Social Sciences shares with the School of Business and Economics;
- remodeling the ROTC Building—the old University Club House;
- upgrading Biological Sciences labs.
