Lyman Briggs College


Innovative Teaching Produces Well-rounded Students

Lyman Briggs College (LBC) offers a transformative experience that should be accessible to every student, regardless of family resources. We want all students to take part in inquiry-based, scientific research of the highest caliber as well as international courses to build their global perspective. We seek to discover better ways to teach science at the college level, so we can offer the best possible education to our students and share our innovative pedagogy with the world.


Lyman Briggs College seeks to raise $5.0 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.


To date we have raised $4.5 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great college forward.

“In 1967, when Lyman Briggs College was founded, we were an experiment in a new approach to teaching science. Today, our work is essential to training scientists who are capable of tackling the world's complex problems.”
