Recognizing that scientific and computational innovation touches every aspect of society, Claremont McKenna College’s future Robert Day Sciences Center (RDSC) represents an important milestone in developing interdisciplinary leaders and providing a setting for dynamic interaction between students, faculty, staff, and experts.

The RDSC—which will house the new Kravis Department of Integrated Sciences (KDIS)—is designed to bring together core disciplines and support the College’s innovative undergraduate sciences curriculum organized around three overlapping foci (health, brain, planet). These three priorities interrelate with one another and provide opportunities for important intersections with the study of psychological sciences, economics and business, government and policy, philosophy and ethics, and other disciplines at CMC.

Set to open in 2025, the RDSC will feature spaces that facilitate collaborative activity throughout, including the Innovation Studio, the Quantum Library, and the Agora—high-trafficked areas for study, group projects, multidisciplinary learning, presentations, and virtual convening, as well as classrooms and offices for CMC institutes, centers, and labs.

We encourage you to take a virtual tour of the RDSC, which was designed by the world-renowned architectural firm, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. We are in the final phase of fundraising for this important project, and look to our community of philanthropists to help us complete the effort. Naming rights within the project and attached to existing campus opportunities remain for adoption, please contact the CMC Development Office for more information.
