BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
The Science Hall was state of the discipline when it opened six decades ago. With one renovation and a few upgrades, it has served Misericordia students well. As we look at the future of learning and discovery in the sciences, it is overwhelmingly clear that we needed to advance our science facilities to prepare for future generations of students.
There are important branches of science taught at Misericordia today that barely existed 60 years ago, and the 21st-century model of learner-based and discovery-based teaching requires a mix of modern laboratories, technologies and learning spaces. Perhaps nothing has changed more and faster at Misericordia than the myriad educational, scientific and communications technologies that have become essential to effective, future-focused learning.
The Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Science Center embodies our commitment to technology, that is advanced and infrastructure that lends itself to superior teaching, learning and research.
Squeezing Today’s Enrollment into Yesterday’s Building
The new Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Science Center is able to accommodate today’s enrollment of almost 3,000 students and will serve Misericordia well into the future.

AN EXCEPCTIONAL NEW SCIENCE CENTER
Designed for modern scientific learning and discovery, the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Science Center embodies Misericordia University’s commitment to teaching technology that is advanced and infrastructure that lends itself to superior teaching, learning and research.
A PREMIER FACILITY
FOR TEACHING, LEARNING AND RESEARCH
At Misericordia, we want our students to do more than learn about science—we want them to research, to discover, to figure out how our world works and to advance society’s knowledge. We want our students to do science. That means we need to fund and build the Henry Science Center.
The sciences are important to all Misericordia students, whether they are majoring in the sciences
or taking courses in these departments as part of their general education. Every one of these students deserves a facility that supports effective, future-focused learning.
Together we will build a premier facility that will provide dedicated, state-of-the-art space for scientific learning and discovery. Now for Tomorrow.
