More than 100 people gathered Sept. 30 on Augusta University’s Health Sciences Campus to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Science and Mathematics building.
Dr. John Sutherland, dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, marveled at the opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration given the proximity of the new building to the Medical College of Georgia, the Dental College of Georgia, and buildings housing research laboratories. He noted that the Science and Mathematics building is bridged, literally, to the Interdisciplinary Research Building and figuratively to the entire health care research complex.
“We can honestly say the College of Science and Mathematics is a college like none other, but the critical thing is, it’s like none other in ways that advance the academic and career aspirations of our students, and the professional and research agenda of our faculty,” he said.
