A dedication ceremony for the new state-of-the-art science center at St. Norbert College will be held on Monday, May 18, at 1:30 p.m. in the atrium of the facility. A social will follow. The event is open to the public.

Lead donors Carol H. and Paul O. Gehl and Miriam B. and James J. Mulva, for whom the science center is named, will be in attendance for the dedication ceremony. Blake Henson, assistant professor of music at St. Norbert, has composed a piece especially for this occasion.

The Gehl-Mulva Science Center is the college's most significant capital building initiative to date. The $40 million project has transformed the former science facility, with a complete renovation of the main building and construction of additions at the east and west ends. The multi-level expansion increased the size of the building to 160,000 square feet.

The center houses the physics, math, psychology, geology, biology and chemistry disciplines. It has 45 teaching/research labs, 10 classrooms, one large lecture hall, 15 student study lounges and offices for 38 faculty. The laboratories feature state-of-the-art equipment; the classrooms are equipped with the latest technology. The Gehl-Mulva Science Center also serves as the primary home of the Medical College of Wisconsin's Green Bay campus, which will welcome its first class of students this July.

A museum adjacent to the atrium honors the work of biologist and botanist the Rev. Anselm Keefe, O.Praem., Class of 1916. Fr. Keefe planted nearly 700 trees, some not indigenous to Wisconsin, and developed the landscape plan that has made the campus into the magnificent arboretum that it is today. The separate wing project will be completed in July.
