The recently completed expansion and renovation to the Main Group is a wonder on many levels: social, environmental and forward planning. First, the new space offers opportunities for the Physic Department’s faculty, students and staff that will enhance interactions among the three groups. It also continues the Institute’s energy initiative by replacing the windows in the courtyard with a modern efficient window system that also respects the historical significance of the Main Group. In addition, it provides significant infrastructure renewal and modernization—a step which can be expected to reduce future renovation costs.
The cornerstone of the project is the Green Center named for Cecil and Ida Green who have made a leadership gift for Physics. Others who made substantial contributions to the project include Neil (E.E. '64) and Jane Pappalardo, Virgil Elings (physics Ph.D. '66) and Jim (physics S.B. '53, Ph.D. '57) and Sylvia Earl.
