The American School & University magazine posted an article quoting Dr. Stephen Bergmeier and headlined “Ohio University breaks ground on new Chemistry building” from the Athens News.

The Athens News reports that the 69,000-square-foot, three-story classroom facility is being constructed in a former parking lot on the Athens campus.

The architects, planners, staff and faculty have all been involved in the collaborative discussions to develop an exciting new facility for chemistry,” says Stephen C. Bergmeier, Professor and Chair of Chemistry and Biochemistry. “We are excited for the project as it will complement the core strengths of the department and enable us to achieve our full potential for the 21st century.”

The first phase includes moving undergraduate instructional laboratories to the first floor of the new facility, the university says. The instructional labs will open to light-filled student collaboration spaces, an environment designed to support student and faculty interaction by providing a variety of work areas in different settings.
