A NEW CENTER OF TEACHING AND LEARNING
The doors to the new 85,000-square-foot Dr. Charles and Mary Schweitzer Bauer School of Arts, Sciences and Education Building (SASE) have opened, and now a striking new educational landmark has emerged on Niagara Street. Featuring a mix of faculty and administration offices; 19 state-of-the art research and teaching laboratories; nine smart classrooms; and shared conference areas, the new facility has brought departments once scattered across campus together under one roof, and as home to the baccalaureate core, it will enrich the experience of every D’Youville undergraduate.
Behind a carefully preserved historic façade, the facility presents D’Youville students and faculty with an environment structured for collaboration, created to ensure flexibility and adaptability, and designed to reflect state-of-the-art thinking in every detail — from the microscopes students use to the digital displays they view. In designing the building, architects and College leaders took inspiration from the best new facilities on campuses nationwide. The result is a facility that brings the liberal arts and sciences at D’Youville into the 21st century. If great spaces can inspire great thinking, this one surely will.
