Employers are looking for people who have experience with the latest technology and tools. SIU’s goal is to make sure every program has what it needs to prepare students for life after graduation.
Whether a student is learning in a chemistry lab, on the farms or in a studio, access to state-of-the art facilities and equipment makes a difference. Programs from physical therapy to automotive technology to journalism rely on specialized learning spaces, and traditional classrooms should be equipped with current technology to connect students and faculty with resources around the world.
Quality facilities also contribute to the quality of campus life. Whether students volunteer at Touch of Nature, practice on the soccer field, play basketball at the Student Recreation Center or simply walk around Campus Lake, we want to make sure that we provide an outstanding environment that will contribute to student satisfaction and retention.
