Center for the Sciences & Innovation

Home to eight academic departments, the McNair Scholars Program, and the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Center for the Sciences & Innovation is Trinity’s hub for collaborative learning and productive collisions. Students and faculty across all disciplines utilize the building to experience hands-on, research-based education.

The Center for the Sciences and Innovation (CSI) is a model for both academic achievement and educational building design. The largest development ever undertaken on the campus, the project includes new construction along with major renovations of existing buildings configured to create an integrated academic complex that puts science on display.
