Boston College faculty and staff will have the opportunity to learn about the University’s innovative Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society at an information session on April 23 at 4 p.m. in the Devlin Hall Admission Auditorium.

Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences Dean Gregory Kalscheur, S.J., and Vice Provost for Research Thomas Chiles will speak at the event.

The Schiller Institute will be the centerpiece of a new 150,000 square-foot science facility scheduled for construction beginning in the spring of 2019. Named in honor of BC Trustee Phil Schiller ’82 and his wife, Kim Gassett-Schiller, through a multi-year lead gift totaling $25 million, the institute will create a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research process to address critical societal issues in the areas of energy, health and the environment.
