The Bollier Center

The Future of STEM Starts Here

In a time when technology spans nearly every field and endeavor, the world needs graduates with an interdisciplinary understanding of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to meet tomorrow's demands.

That's why Gonzaga built The Bollier Center for Integrated Science and Engineering. Opened in fall of 2021, this 82,000-square-foot facility takes STEM education to a new level of engagement and real-world preparation. 

From climate change and public health research to biochemistry, psych and electronics labs, this Jesuit-inspired space creates opportunity for engineering and applied and natural sciences to live and grow together.

Bridging the STEM Gap


By 2030, 84% of job openings that require two to four-year degrees will be in STEM.


The Bollier Center brings our STEM complex to more than 270,000 square feet.


SEAS ranked in the top 15% among non-doctoral-degree granting engineering programs nationwide.

Located near downtown, the STEM complex connects students to regional business.

In Their Words

Troy Aitken

Civil Engineering Alumni and Donor

"I am forever grateful for the experiences, lessons and friendships gained along the way of my Gonzaga education. My hopes are that this building helps to grow the community and campus in a positive way and develops a state-of-the-art facility that not only draws in good people, but also gives them a chance to feel at home, grow, learn and be creative.”

Annmarie Caño

Dr. Annmarie Caño

Professor of Psychology

"The Bollier Center will support collaborative problem-solving across disciplines that is aligned with our mission to educate 'people for others,' who are intentional about using their STEM expertise for the greater good. The collaboration space also affords an opportunity for student affinity groups and their allies to gather and find a supportive environment, which can be a challenge for women, BIPOC students and LGBTQ+ students in STEM.”

"Being a mechanical engineering major hoping to go into a more biological application of my field, I’m interested to see what opportunities will unfold having science and engineering professors working more closely together."

Karlene Hoo

Dr. Karlene Hoo

Dean of the School of Engineering & Applied Science

“The Bollier Center provides the space to allow for a modern multi-disciplinary curriculum to be implemented that can address the myriad of global challenges posed by the water-food-energy-planet nexus.”

“There are going to be more resources and lab spaces available, which will let us explore new things and empower professors to do projects they’ve been wanting to but haven’t had the space.”

"Producing competent engineering graduates requires that the University remains on the cutting edge of innovation and research. I support Gonzaga because I want to make sure that the investment our students make in the University is rewarded with a fulfilling career and a well-rounded liberal arts education."
