Coming to life

The campaign to build a new Life Sciences Building at Utah State University

Every aspiring Aggie scientist, engineer, physician and teacher, along with those who dream of  hundreds of other futures, enters Utah State University with the need for a solid foundation of science  learning. Each student yearns for an academic environment that fuels curiosity, discovery and propels  them toward life-enhancing, world-transforming opportunities.

USU's College of Science strives to fulfill these dreams by providing critical, gateway courses in 
biology, chemistry and other disciplines that enable students in all of the university's colleges to reach  higher and achieve growing benchmarks of excellence.

Coming to Life, the campaign for a new Life Sciences Building at Utah State, is the catalyst for  student achievement in the life sciences and beyond. But the university needs your help. Current  classroom and lab facilities are dated and scheduled at 125 percent capacity. Students increasingly  encounter frustrating class waiting lists that delay their graduation plans.

Thanks to vital support from the Utah Legislature, the Life Sciences Building signals one of USU's 
most historic investments in the sciences. To complement public funding, our college is continuing our  fundraising efforts to raise additional private funds to provide cutting-edge labs and teaching space  critically needed to prepare our graduates for a competitive, global economy.

Utah State needs your help to advance this endeavor, which will add:

  • 13 teaching laboratories
  • Five lecture halls and classrooms
  • Four research laboratory suites
  • Collaboration and student study spaces

Naming and lead gift opportunities are available, as well as opportunities to fund lab equipment.  If you would like to join our effort in ensuring USU's proud legacy and bright future, please contact us:
