A NEW CENTER OF TEACHING AND LEARNING
Soon, a striking new educational landmark on Niagara Street will welcome D’Youville students and faculty: the home and headquarters of the Dr. Charles and Mary Schweitzer Bauer School of Arts, Sciences and Education. Behind a carefully preserved historic façade, the building will provide 80,000 square feet of gleaming new instructional and office space. It will bring departments now scattered across campus together under one roof, and as home to the courses of the baccalaureate core, it will enrich the experience of every D’Youville undergraduate.
With this new facility, the College will replace long outdated laboratories and meet a pressing need for space. Just as important, we will bring the liberal arts and sciences at D’Youville into the 21st century. In designing the building, architects and College leaders took inspiration from the best new facilities on campuses nationwide. The result is a structure created for collaboration, flexible and adaptable, and reflecting state-of-the-art thinking in every detail—from the microscopes students will use to the digital displays they will view. If great spaces can inspire great thinking, this one surely will.
