Pardon Our Dust...And Watch Our Progress! 

Want to see what's happening at the SciTech construction site? Take a peek at the two livestreams below to see a live feed of SciTech's progress!


After years of planning and advocacy, UWRF's Science and Technology Innovation Center (SciTech) will soon become a reality. The State of Wisconsin has provided $111.73 million of the $116.73 million needed to complete SciTech. Alumni entrepreneurs Jeff and Kristi Cernohous, '93, have generously presented a $1 million lead gift in support of the project. Now, we need your help.

Please join Jeff and Kristi and the Campaign to Support SciTech as we raise the remaining $5 million for a project which will provide immersive hands-on learning experiences for our students, while at the same time, support productive collaborations with regional businesses and industries. It's about keeping the best and brightest here to become our leaders of tomorrow.

Please consider investing in one of the most significant projects in UWRF's 150-year history. Invest in the future. Join the Campaign to Support SciTech today!

Thank you for your support of one of the most transformational projects in UW-River Falls history! A monetary contribution helps UWRF bring this important facility to life.

SciTech isn’t about a building. It’s about providing immersive high-impact learning experiences and building limitless productive and collaborative opportunities for students, faculty and the regional business community. 

Thank you for making an impact and moving UWRF forward!
