Columbia College

Brouder Science Center

The two-story, state-of-the-art Science Brouder Science Center houses the physical and biological sciences department, the nursing department and the forensic science program.
The west wing has five classrooms, 18 faculty offices, conference room, a 126-seat lecture hall and houses the nursing program.

The classrooms include flexible seating and technology such as data projectors and SMART boards. The nursing simulation room allows hands-on-training, with students using SimMan, a simulated patient.

The north wing is solely for laboratories and houses five general labs: two for biology and one each for anatomy/physiology, chemistry and physical science; and eight advanced labs: two for advanced biology, two for advanced chemistry, a nursing lab, a forensic lab and two instrumentation rooms. The north wing has 100 percent turnover air ventilation to ensure safety in the laboratories. Air is vacuumed out four times per hour and replaced with fresh hair using the ventilation system and special fume hoods. The building also uses reclaimed heat and motion sensor lights
