Research I (RSCHI)
With an observatory tower that reaches to the sky and opens to the stars, the new research building at Mason represents the future direction of George Mason University: onward and upward. A new, high-powered telescope will be installed spring 2009.
Research I is the first of its kind at Mason. It is a facility designed almost exclusively to support the institution's growing need for research space.
Some of the buildings occupants are: The College of Science, the Center for History and New Media, Center for Air Transportation Systems Research, Center for Earth Observing & Space Research, C4I, Center for Social Complexity, and the Office of Sponsored Programs.
