A combined-discipline facility and academic unit for chemistry, biology, and physics will support High Point University’s rapid program growth, expand experiential learning opportunities, support leading research initiatives, and enhance student and faculty recruiting efforts. Angela Bauer and Brian Augustine set out key decision points in scoping out the new future-facing Wanek Building, and they detail innovative laboratory, planetarium, and classroom features High Point selected to equip students with workforce-ready technical skills and a scientific mindset. They illustrate efficiencies in space, equipment, and operating costs available by putting three disciplines under one roof.
