McLafferty Annex Building

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS - Due Nov. 30, 2016

What does the future hold for SIU Carbondale's Saluki Innovation Annex? The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research invites you to join in shaping the campus' newest resource for SIU researchers, artists, and innovators through the SIUC Grand Challenge for Research and Creative Activity.

The Saluki Innovation Annex--also known as McLafferty Annex--was home to the SIU Carbondale book collection during the renovation of Morris Library. The building now features a state-of-the art aquatic research center, SIU's new Fermentation Science Institute, and a laser facility. The remaining 45,000 square feet is ready to be developed into laboratories, studios, galleries, collaborative work facilities, and more.

See the Request for Proposals for more information on how to submit your idea for use of the space.
