Completion of the Rector Science Complex not only reunites all members of the biology department in one physical space, but it also facilitates the exchange of ideas between faculty with similar and diverse interests. Often the ideas that generate the greatest progress originate from a different perspective that sparks a new way of thinking about a long-standing problem.

The Rector Science Complex addition unites the biology department with Dickinson's other science departments. The new space provides additional state-of-the-art facilities and more opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration across the sciences.
The addition includes:
- more than 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research and teaching space
- an enclosed courtyard
- and additional study nooks.
The complex's existing vivarium also was upgraded and given improved HVAC controls as part of the project. By relocating the biology department, the addition opens space in Dana Hall for the expansion of other faculty and academic programs.
