Project Name: CNS Biology (Anatomy) Teaching Labs
Campus: San Bernardino
Phase: Construction Start: December 9, 2019
The College of Natural Sciences at Cal State San Bernardino is getting two new Biology teaching labs and renovated Graduate research facilities.
The vacated museum space in the Chemical Sciences building, CS-141, will be converted into two new state-of-the-art Anatomy/Physiology teaching laboratories with a total of 48 seats and a shared specimen storage room. These new lab facilities will double the capacity of the existing Anatomy/ Physiology lab and will allow for additional course sections to be offered to meet student demand.
On the third floor of the Biological Sciences building, the existing specimen storage room , BI-326, will be converted into a new Geology Graduate research laboratory, to provide much needed research space for students and faculty. This space will include a safety shower/eyewash, and accessible accommodations for a fume hood and sink to ensure equal access to learning and opportunity for academic success.
This project is the culmination of the partnership with CSUSB Academic Affairs, faculty, Administration & Finance and the Chancellors Office; whom championed the project to alleviate the bottleneck related to impacted Anatomy lab sections and enhance the student research experience.
- Funding: CSU System provided $2.7M funding for the $2.9M project
- Project Manager: Alfred Salgado
- Estimated Project Completion: Fall 2020
