“The building was designed to place our very best researchers in close proximity and highly visible and apparent to our freshmen and other undergraduates utilizing the McCourtney Learning Center. The intention was to instill curiosity about research in our undergraduates and, hopefully, motivate them to pursue their own research projects. This facility does this beautifully.� Peter Kilpatrick, McCloskey Dean of Engineering, University of Notre Dame
