PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) - Landmark College in Putney has opened its new 28,500-square-foot education and research center focused on science technology, engineering and math.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1jnnWLS ) Saturday’s opening was held as Landmark College celebrates its 30th anniversary.

Michelle Bower, chair of the mathematics and computer science department, says the $9.6 million center shows a “demonstrated commitment of the institution to the field” and to the students.

The center is the first new academic building added to campus since the school opened three decades ago. It includes four science labs, two computer classrooms and a dozen faculty offices.

College president Peter Eden says the new building will allow the school to continue growing its programs.

The college serves students with learning disabilities.
