Newman University will host a dedication ceremony of the new Bishop Gerber Science Center at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21. The building opened its doors at the beginning of the fall 2017 semester.
The new state-of-the-art science center was the main focus of the Facing Forward campaign, which also raised funds to renovate existing nursing and allied health lab spaces.
“We are blessed to have in the Bishop Gerber Science Center wonderful spaces and places for our excellent faculty to challenge and support generations of students to come,” said President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D.
“The new opportunities for scientific learning and research in these classrooms and laboratories will enable our graduates to realize their dreams. And formed within the context of our Catholic identity and mission, they will be prepared for professional success with caring hearts and a commitment to transforming society.”
The day’s events will include a Mass at 4 p.m. in St. John’s Chapel for those who wish to attend, followed by the dedication ceremony. After the ceremony, there will be an open house and tours available for those interested in getting an inside look at the new building.
