Whittier College has received $500,000 from The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation to support the redesign of the new Science and Learning Center (SLC). The SLC project – the largest capital project in the College’s 127-year history – involves a complete renovation of the primary academic building on campus. Construction on the Center is slated to begin in Spring 2015.
With the goal of introducing high school students to hands-on scientific research, Whittier College student mentors and nine Pioneer High School students visited the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium recently as part of the Center for Engagement with Communities' (CEC) Artemis Project.
Research Experience for Undergraduates offer top Whittier College math and science majors the opportunity to spend summer months learning advanced research methods and preparing for work at the graduate level.
