Monday, Oct. 3, the University marked a milestone with a topping out ceremony for the Science & Engineering Innovation Center (SEIC). Representatives from the College of Science & Engineering (CoSE), UCorp, Advancement, Genentech, DPR Construction, the SmithGroup design firm and more were present at the event, held near the construction site on 19th Ave. Attendees had the opportunity to sign the final beam, which was overflowing with signatures and messages. President Lynn Mahoney and CoSE Dean Carmen Domingo, among others, made short remarks thanking everyone for their work and shared their enthusiasm for what this new building will bring to campus. 

“This building is a game changer for us,” President Mahoney said during the ceremony. She notes that in addition to positively changing the campus, it will continue to support our students, many of whom are first-generation college students of color. “We are particularly proud of the work we’ve done building a diverse pipeline in STEM.”
