Higher Education

The Leifson Physics and Chemistry Buildings were originally built
in 1967 and house the College of Science Departments of Physics and Chemistry. In support of University and College of Science research and educational objectives, the first floor of the Chemistry Building and the third floor of Leifson Physics received substantial renovations by Clark/Sullivan Construction to provide state-of-the- art facilities to students and staff.

The research laboratories, office spaces, and three classrooms on the first floor of the physics building were modernized. Ventilation systems were upgraded and expanded throughout, and overall building safety enhanced with the addition of building-wide fire alarm systems, and fire sprinklers on all floors of each building. Due to innovative design, the Chemistry Building assignable space was increased by 1,778 square feet and the Leifson Physics Building assignable space was increased by 839 square feet.

Leifson Physics Building

The layout of the Leifson Physics building includes three classrooms on the first floor; seven laboratory spaces; two laboratory support spaces; 11 offices; conference room; one graduate student work area; and one collaboration room.

Chemistry Building

The layout of the chemistry building includes five laboratory spaces, eight laboratory support spaces, eight offices, four graduate student workspaces, one collaboration room, one conference room, and a modernized elevator cab.
