The CSI Equipment Fund
The Jim and Janet Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation is the largest building project in Seattle University history, and puts STEM at the core of a Seattle University education. The scale of this transformative project is matched only by the intense demand and growth seen in the College of Science and Engineering. Yet the new STEM complex is more than stone, steel and glass. It is the new heart of Seattle University, where the world’s next generation of leaders will gain the skills and knowledge to solve the most pressing problems of today and tomorrow.
First-Class Professional Preparation Demands First-Class Equipment
One-third of today’s science majors at Seattle University perform in-depth scientific research alongside faculty mentors. In the new Jim and Janet Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation (opening this fall) students will explore such scientific problems as the mechanisms by which DNA repair happens, how bacteria in soil communicate with their neighbors, and the creation of nanowires. This invaluable undergraduate experience will help them stand out when they apply to top graduate programs or enter research or health care careers.
The CSI Equipment fund will allow us to outfit our new labs and project rooms with scientific instrumentation needed to meet expanded student interest and create new opportunities.
"We involve students in research so they learn to do science—the whole messy, challenging, uncertain, embracing, thrilling experience.” –Lindsay Whitlow, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Biology
