When Whitworth's Eric Johnston Science Center opened in 1967, the world had yet to witness a walk on the moon, AIDS did not exist, and no one had ever heard of "green chemistry." But even as research and discovery in the scientific world have moved at a rapid pace over the last 40 years, Whitworth science students remain committed to studying and analyzing both the understood and the unexamined universe in ways that encompass the role of faith in learning. As we at Whitworth adapt to the changing world and the needs of our students by preparing to construct a new bio/chem building and add much-needed space for our burgeoning science programs, your support of The Whitworth Fund is more important than ever before. To help maintain the distinctive mind-and-heart mission that Whitworth has embraced throughout its history and to enable our students to pursue the abundant opportunities of tomorrow, please visit www.whitworth.edu/give, or call June Hanson at 509.777.4343 or 800.532.4668.
