Albright College continually faces the challenge of providing our students and faculty with a teaching and learning environment that’s comfortable and modern while meeting academic needs. The College must regularly add to, replace or upgrade our learning, residential and athletic facilities while maintaining the resources we already have.
Many of these improvement projects are funded by private support that falls outside the regular operating budget. In response to this need, many of the College’s alumni and friends, along with corporations and foundations, provide funding for a myriad of critical capital improvement projects.
Such improvements play a key role in the College’s ability to fulfill our mission and help us remain competitive among our peer institutions. To learn more about existing and future capital projects and how you can support them, please contact the Development Office at 610-921-7500.
Our New Science Center
Albright College began construction on our new Science Center in spring 2008. The project was designed to add more than 41,000 square feet of state-of-the-art lab and classroom space to the existing Merner-Pfeiffer Hall of Science, which will be renovated, for a total of more than 78,500 square feet.
The new addition, named Trustee Hall, opened for classes for the fall 2010 semester; the renovation of the original building will be completed in spring 2011.
Details and background on the project, along with a live web cam and an archive of newsletters documenting progress on the project, are available at http://www.albright.edu/sciencecenter/ .
