State-of-the-art Integrated Science and Engineering (ISE) facility planned at Gonzaga

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

In July, Gonzaga’s Board of Trustees approved construction of a brand-new, state-of-the-art Integrated Science and Engineering (ISE) facility. We intend to start construction this fall, and this important center will welcome in a new energy and vision for science, engineering, computer science, mathematics and neuroscience for the University and the Spokane region.

Scheduled to open its doors in time for Fall Semester 2021, the 82,000+ square foot ISE facility will be the fourth facility (in addition to PACCAR Center, Hughes Hall and the Herak Center) that in total amount to more than 270,000 square feet on campus dedicated to classroom and laboratory education for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. But beyond these disciplines, it will be a hub for learning about, and engaging in, concepts relating to innovation, creativity, and real-world problem solving for undergraduates from across the University. Funding for this project will continue to come from a variety of important sources, including donations, current resources, and financing.

This significant new academic facility will allow us to take these programs to an important, indeed vital, new level. I ask that you join us as we continue on this exciting path toward the future. Gonzaga alumni, parents, and friends play an enormous role in continuing the important tradition of supporting the next generation. To this end, please consider mentoring a GU student, providing employment/internship leads for fellow Zags and consider making a gift to help Gonzaga remain current and competitive, and provide the best possible experiences to challenge and  support our students.
