New England Council member Framingham State University (FSU) recently opened a new science facility. The new facility includes 16 laboratories for biology, chemistry, and food science as well as an atrium, lounge, and study areas.
The new facility at Framingham State is part of an $84 million project to renovate Hemenway Hall. Demand for a new science facility was partially explained by the 58% increase in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) enrollment at FSU. The new facility is expected to receive a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
“Students considering attending Framingham State now know that they will have access to first-rate science laboratories designed for exciting research and collaboration,” said FSU President Javier Cevallos.
The New England Council commends Framingham State University for their commitment to enhancing STEM education and congratulates them on their new facility.
