The Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Center for Innovation and Active Citizenship will be located in the center of campus, allowing the school to house its innovative science, math, engineering, technology, entrepreneurship, and citizenship curriculum in one location overlooking the School’s historic Quad.  

“When you’re on the outside looking in, you will see all of the various departments, you will see the classrooms and the students learning. And then when you’re on the inside looking out, you’ve got a view on the campus that deserves to be embraced. That’s what’s so amazing about the design.”
