Office of AdvancementRieke Science Center

Our Future Begins Today

For the last 26 years, Rieke Science Center has served as the home for science education at Pacific Lutheran University.

Our alums can be found in top research institutions and laboratories as leading biologists, chemists, computer analysts, physicists and software engineers in their fields of study. Our students are in cutting edge health professions, serving as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and dentists all over the globe and in the classrooms as well.

HERE’S OUR VISION

The excellence of our facilities and equipment no longer match the excellence of our students. Outdated lab space, classrooms and equipment are hindering the intellectual growth of the science program and, ultimately, our students. 

SUSTAINING THE LEGACY OF WELL-TRAINED, GLOBALLY-CONSCIOUS GRADUATES

To continue to attract the strongest possible students and to recruit top faculty, the time is right to update equipment, laboratories and classroom space in order to keep up with the advances in how science is conducted and taught.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

PLU needs your support as an alumnus, friend, business, or foundation to make this project a success. Your gifts are an investment in our students, our faculty, and ultimately in the impact our graduates will have on the Puget Sound area, on the nation and the world. And for our students to be successful in their chosen vocations, they must have the tools and skills to navigate a rapidly evolving, complex and information-rich scientific environment.
