Campaign for the Sciences

Throughout our 165-year history of teaching the sciences at Franklin College, we have relentlessly pursued groundbreaking science opportunities.

On May 18, 2017, we continued that pursuit by breaking ground on our $17 million state-of-the-art Franklin College Science Center. Once completed, the 51,000 square-foot facility will prepare our students to make remarkable professional achievements in emerging science careers, contributing to the $63 billion life sciences economy in Indiana.
