Boston College will host an Information Session on April 30 at 3:30 p.m. in Devlin 110 to provide details on the upcoming construction of the new science facility housing the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society, and how it will affect traffic, parking, and other aspects of campus life.

Work on the 150,000 square-foot building will begin shortly after Commencement. The facility, slated to open in 2021, will be built on the site adjacent to Higgins Hall now occupied by Cushing Hall.

The meeting will feature remarks by Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences Dean Gregory Kalscheur, S.J., Vice Provost for Research and Academic Planning Thomas Chiles, Vice President for Facilities Management Daniel Bourque, Associate Vice President for Capital Projects Management Mary Nardone, and Senior Construction Project Manager Thomas Runyon.

As the cornerstone of the new facility, the Schiller Institute will create a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research space to address critical societal issues in the areas of energy, health, and the environment. More information about the institute is available at
