The Billie Tisch Center for Integrated Sciences: An interactive virtual tour

December 12, 2022

With the first two phases of the Billie Tisch Center for Integrated Sciences (BTCIS) now open to Skidmore students, faculty, and staff — and the final phase on target for completion in 2024 — the College cordially invites you to take this interactive virtual tour of the largest single academic project in Skidmore College history.

Once fully completed, the Billie Tisch Center for Integrated Sciences will house all 10 of Skidmore’s science departments and programs and more than 90 science faculty members.
Its first phase, the North Wing, opened for the fall 2020 semester and is home to the departments of Computer Science and Mathematics and Statistics, in addition to some chemistry and biology classes.

The North Wing is also the first building in Skidmore’s history to be LEED-certified. The underground geothermal system located in its basement will heat and cool all 200,000 square feet of BTCIS.
The East Wing and the first renovated portion of Dana Science Center comprised Phase II of construction and opened for the fall 2022 semester. The Phase II facilities house the Biology and Chemistry departments, Environmental Studies and Sciences offices, and biomolecular research, ESS, geoscience, and physics labs.

The renovation of the remaining Dana Science Center space — the final phase of BTCIS — is on track for completion in 2024 and will create a permanent new home for the departments of Health and Human Physiological Sciences, Psychology, and Physics, as well as Neuroscience Program labs.

To navigate this interactive tour, simply play the video and click the hovering buttons you will see along the way. When you click these “hotspots,” you’ll learn more about many of the Billie Tisch Center for Integrated Sciences’ highlights — from the Glotzbach Atrium to the Schupf Family IdeaLab and state-of-the-art labs and classrooms — as well as the interdisciplinary, innovative learning that BTCIS supports.
