More than 20 years ago, an idea began to take shape at the University of San Diego: to bring the four science programs on campus together in a brand-new, carefully planned building equipped with modern instruments and equipment, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Collaboration and growth potential of the programme. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the idea, which eventually turned into the Donald P. Shelley Science and Technology Center.
With features including a rooftop greenhouse, two nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, a distinctive strata plaza, which mimics the geology of San Diego County, and more than 70 classrooms and laboratories, the four-story, 150,000-square-foot building was a precursor to science in the U.S.A. To the modern era.
