Nazareth Receives $2M Gift to Name New Integrated Center for Math and Science

31 May

Nazareth College’s new Integrated Center for Math and Science will have the name Peckham Hall when it opens to students in August of this year, thanks to a $2 million gift from Larry and Nancy Peckham. Peckham Hall, which will house the Integrated Center for Math and Science, will play an instrumental role in leading the way for Nazareth students to receive the very best in math and science education, enabling the College to increase the number of students who pursue majors in science and math fields, as well as those who pursue careers as health and human services professionals and teachers of math and science.

“Nazareth College is enormously grateful to Larry and Nancy Peckham for this generous gift to name the Integrated Center for Math and Science,” said Nazareth President Daan Braveman. “They have looked into the future and see how this building will help Nazareth expand the number of students interested in pursuing careers in math, science, technology, health care, and teaching. They also understand that the facility will have far-reaching impact on the Rochester community as many of our students remain in the region as health care professionals, teachers, and professionals in STEM-related fields.”

To learn more about the features of the newly named Peckham Hall, view the official press release. For more information about Nazareth College, visit naz.edu.

“Every child is a scientist.”

Brain Picking’s Maria Popova shares a great video featuring astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson musing on our intrinsic human interest and curiosity in science and creativity:

 

Nazareth has equipped thousands of local professionals to build their lives here in Rochester, N.Y., and beyond. Many of our alumni stay in the greater Rochester region–and for nearly a century, we’ve helped keep the region culturally rich, intellectually curious, physically healthy.

Now, an exciting new space is taking shape on campus—the Integrated Center for Math and Science, opening in fall 2012. Here, a new generation of teachers, physicians, scientists, veterinarians, and environmentalists will help our graduates and the community soar into the future.

 

Save the date for the grand opening of the Integrated Center for Math and Science on Thursday, September 27, 2012.

The day’s events are still being finalized, but please mark your calendars and join us in celebrating this major milestone for the College.
