Construction for a new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (ISE) building is underway on Saint Louis University's campus.
The 90,000-square-foot, three-story structure is expected to be complete in summer 2020.
Featuring innovative teaching environments and flexible lab spaces, the building is expected to be a place where students and faculty learn, collaborate and experiment together.
The building will be an inviting space where science is on display."
