Oglethorpe University, I.W. “Ike” Cousins Center for Science and Innovation
The I.W. “Ike” Cousins Center for Science and Innovation is a 20,000 SF renovation and 25,000 SF expansion of Goslin Hall. This signature multi-use building will contain new science laboratories and classrooms, as well as provide spaces for interactive study across disciplines. The project will facilitate engaged teaching and active learning through both formal and informal interactions. It will be designed to accommodate current and emerging programs that underscore the university’s commitment to a rigorous, interdisciplinary course of study, and it will enhance Oglethorpe’s capacity to graduate students with the skills to prosper in the 21st century workplace and be of service to the Atlanta community and the world beyond.
This new facility will be a home for the sciences, an incubator for innovative interdisciplinary learning that engages the whole campus, and a connector for the growing campus. It will be a signature building that reflects the university’s history and culture, while demonstrating the fiscal stewardship that personifies the Oglethorpe of today. Oglethorpe hopes to apply for LEED-certification, in line with its commitment to conservation and sustainability.
