Fall 2013 saw the opening and celebration of two science spaces that propel SUNY Oswego forward in opportunities for students -- the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation and Rice Creek Field Station.
Dedicated to the late Richard S. Shineman, professor emeritus and first chair of chemistry, and honoring Dr. Barbara Palmer Shineman '65, M '71 and the Shineman Foundation, the dynamic Shineman Center promotes innovative science teaching and student-faculty collaboration. The 230,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility is also targeted for LEED Gold certification. The Oct. 4 dedication ceremony included an honorary degree for, and remarks by, sustainability pioneer Anthony Cortese.
The new 7,200-square-foot Rice Creek Field Station, also built to LEED Gold standards, is the centerpiece of 400 acres of preserved nature that includes a new observatory, pavilion and trails spanning 7.5 miles for students and the community.
