Medaille Celebrates Opening of Laboratory and Science Center
Medaille College celebrated the opening of its new, $1.3 million Laboratory and Science Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 24. The celebration of the donor-funded, state-of-the-art facility featured tours, live demonstrations and experiments by Medaille students. See an album of photos from the opening celebration on Flickr.
Located on the third floor of the College’s Main Building, the Center provides facilities and equipment for a wide range of academic programs. The lab offers a variety of benefits for students and faculty, including larger work areas, hoods for organic chemistry work, efficient workspace design, interactive monitors, and a dedicated room with specialized equipment for faculty/student research projects.
The lab also enables the College to expand its Science in Bloom program — the only program of its kind in the area. This partnership between Medaille and the Valley Community Association (VCA) offers inquiry-based science activities to Buffalo Public Schools students enrolled in the VCA after-school program. The new lab space increases the number of BPS students able to take advantage of Science in Bloom and work directly with Medaille undergraduate student mentors.
The Laboratory and Science Center project was part of the College’s Partnerships for Opportunity Comprehensive Campaign and received a State and Municipal Facilities Program (SAM) grant through Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes and a Higher Education Capital (HECap) grant. In addition to a $250,000 challenge grant from M&T Bank, the Center received generous funding from Walsh Duffield Companies, Inc., Eastman Machine Company, the George L. Alden Trust, the James H. Cummings Foundation, the Wendt Foundation, the Garman Family Foundation, the Trbovich Family Foundation, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Moran, Jr.
