Our panelists share our vision and approach to creating an inclusive, student-centered Vernier Science Center. The future Vernier Science Center will transform our aging undergraduate science building into a culturally-affirming, state-of-the-art science center that ensures our increasingly diverse student body can access the high-quality research and learning spaces necessary to prepare them for a future in STEM. Learn more about our vision as our panelists explore the intentional practices and spaces that are critical to creating an inclusive, student-centered building.
