Towson University recently broke ground on their new $150 million (construction cost), 320,000 sf science complex. As a research-oriented university, Towson provides students with extraordinary opportunities to work alongside faculty in addressing significant issues, while also generating new knowledge to solve real-world societal challenges.
Towson has experienced 132% growth in the past 20 years and will become the largest undergraduate campus in the Maryland university system. It is predicted that over 10,000 students will take classes in this new building each year.
When complete, the facility will house all teaching, research and administrative functions for biology, PAGs (Physics, Astronomy, and Geosciences), chemistry, science education and environmental sciences. The program goal is to maximize the integration between teaching and research, and foster collaboration between multidisciplinary programs.
