Explore. Engage. Discover.
Conceived as a vibrant gathering place, the Town Center welcomes campus and community members for events that celebrate science and creativity. More structured outreach programs and workshops offer participants the opportunity to connect with scientific topics ranging from regenerative biology to rapid prototyping. And casual visitors are always invited to dine at the Town Center’s food venues, which feature regionally grown and freshly prepared foods.
In producing a calendar of compelling events, conferences and activities, the Town Center serves as a venue for programs with a scientific component that emphasize interdisciplinary collaboration or that focus on the interface between the university and the public or private sector. Events that offer a unique creative contribution also are intended to become part of the lively and intriguing mix.
