Why a new building?
We want to create a hub where every Badger from any major can come and work together with others to creatively ideate and collaborate on projects while acquiring valuable skills.
The Computer Sciences, Statistics and Information Sciences programs have witnessed extraordinary student enrollment in recent years that shows no signs of slowing.
In addition to fostering entrepreneurial startups, increasing industry partnerships from tech companies like Google and Microsoft creates unique opportunities for students to gain valuable experience.
Help us build the future.
A Hub for Collaboration
This facility will be dedicated to digital excellence in both research and education. With spaces for classroom instruction, research, study, and collaboration, it will facilitate connection between students, faculty, and industry partners.
A Centralized Location
The building will create a new center of activity for the campus, enabling important connections and establishing a tech corridor from Physics and Chemistry to the Discovery Building to the College of Engineering.
Where Learning Happens
Modern classrooms with the latest features for connectivity and collaboration will facilitate hands-on learning experiences. The building will also have enough space to double our faculty to meet current and anticipated demand.
The American Family Data Science Institute, Center for High Throughput Computer and Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics will all reside in the new CDIS building, offering exciting collaboration, research and learning opportunities.
