The environment in which tomorrow’s scientists will lay the groundwork for their futures was the topic of a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Robert “Bud” Fischer, dean of the MTSU College of Basic and Applied Sciences, first aired Oct. 27 on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org). You can listen to their conversation here.
MTSU administrators and other dignitaries held an official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the university’s new $147 million science building Oct. 15.
The 257,000-square-foot facility includes six teaching lecture halls, 13 research laboratories and 36 teaching laboratories.
“The research labs … are gigantic,” said Fischer. “They’re meant to be interdisciplinary. They hold more than one faculty member. They hold more than one faculty member’s grad students and undergrads. So it’s really building a team type of atmosphere to do research.”
