UWRF SciTech Groundbreaking

University of Wisconsin-River Falls officials held a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday to commemorate construction underway on the university’s Science and Technology Innovation Center (SciTech).

The much anticipated $117 million building is the largest project in UW-River Falls history and has been years in the making.

SciTech will be home to students from a wide range of majors who will learn through hands-on, high-impact experiences in biology, chemistry, physics and psychological sciences.

The project will create partnerships between UW-River Falls and businesses, thereby providing students with valuable research opportunities and jobs while growing the economy.

The state of Wisconsin has funded $111.73 million for the SciTech project, and the university is raising the remaining $5 million.

Construction on SciTech began during the summer and the building is projected to open to students in 2026.
