How can new and more appropriate spaces contribute to better learning in science and mathematics for our students?
- PKAL, Volume III: Structures for Science

It is not acceptable simply to think about how many square feet for laboratories, about safety and siting, or about configuration of furniture. This is a time to think about the process of education on your campus and how present and proposed programs reflect your particular institutional mission and identity. This reaffirmation of mission and reexamination of academic plan should take place at the departmental as well as at the institutional level. It is the essential beginning point, the first step in bringing the right people together to explore new spaces and structures.
