The David and Lucille Packard Foundation awarded Colorado College a $4 million grant to help build the Russell T. Tutt Science Center. The building will house several departments and programs in the natural sciences, including environmental science. Designed by internationally known architects Moore, Ruble, Yudell of Santa Monica, Calif., the center completes a suite of science buildings begun in the 1980s on the campus. Tutt Science Center will feature 11 classrooms and classroom/lab complexes, an environmental science research center, and a lecture hall seating 75. Groundbreaking is slated for 2001. The grant ? $1.5 million for a professorship in environmental science and $2.5 for the building ? brings the campaign total to $78.8 million toward a goal of $83 million.
