The University of San Francisco broke ground on its much anticipated science center, to be named the John Lo Schiavo,
S.J. Center for Science and Innovation, after USF’s chancellor and former president, December 10. Occupancy of the new center is expected in 2014.
The 60,000-square-foot building—designed by award winning architecture firm NBBJ—will remake the university’s presence on the main campus and expand the ability of
faculty to teach advanced science.
With more than $40 million raised for the project, USF President Stephen A. Privett, S.J., and Claudio Chiuchiarelli, chairman of the board of trustees, thanked and congratulated major donors at the groundbreaking, attended by Fr. Lo Schiavo (right, with Fr. Privett).
