Personal Message

The future of science education is here. Sacramento State is building a new Science Complex, the first newly constructed academic building on campus since Mariposa Hall in 2000. The Science Complex will provide immersive learning opportunities that prepare graduates who are ready to take on the world.

Learning and study spaces designed to promote peer-to-peer interaction, teaching labs featuring the latest technology and equipment, and an observatory and planetarium created with the community in mind, combine to create a hub where discovery happens. And it will position Sacramento State as a regional resource for science and technology knowledge.

A strong educational pipeline is critical to meeting the growing demand for STEM professionals who will be at the core of the economic vitality of our region – and beyond.

Donations are applied to...

The California State University system has committed $71 million in funding toward the $91 million cost of building the Science Complex. Sacramento State must raise the remaining $20 million needed to complete the project. Private support is critical to provide our faculty and students with additional space and equipment, all designed for the needs of modern science. An investment in the Science Complex is an investment in our students, their futures, and the continued economic competitiveness of our region.

For more information about giving to the Science Complex or the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, please contact Jennifer Navarro, Director of Development at jennifer.navarro or (916) 278-6288. Giving Tuesday is Nov 28, but your support is always appreciated. Give online anytime.

Why are donations necessary?

Sacramento State students are the future leaders who will be charged with addressing the greatest challenges facing the world, including those that we already know, such as healthy aging, climate change, and hunger; and those we can’t even yet imagine. The Science Complex will be a place of discovery where students become the 21st century scientists needed to tackle these complex issues. And while we know that developing solutions to these challenges will require a collaborative approach, we believe that our students will contribute to the important body of knowledge needed. The state-of-the-art Science Complex will enhance the learning and research already underway at Sacramento State and provide our faculty and students with the tools they need to be trailblazers in science and technology.
