A description of how CU-Boulder’s Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory was developed might read a little like the Gettysburg Address with the addition of the word student: of the students, by the students and for the students.

The three-story, 34,000 square foot laboratory is intended primarily for use by undergraduate engineering students and this semester is being used for freshmen, sophomore and junior courses.

Editors: A media tour of the ITLL will be at 10 a.m. April 22 beginning at the east entrance of the engineering college.

The University of Colorado at Boulder will dedicate a one-of-a-kind, $17 million hands-on learning facility April 24 that was designed and built to provide real-world engineering experience to more than 1,200 undergraduates a day.

April 7, 1997

* The ITLL facility was designed by the Denver architectural firm of Klipp, Colussy, Jenks and DuBois with assistance by NBBJ Architects of San Francisco and Sheere/Leese Architects of Denver. It was built by M.A. Mortenson Co. of Denver.

* ITLL will accommodate up to 1,200 students a day, about one-half of the undergraduate engineering student body population at CU-Boulder. The building will be open for use 16 hours a day, seven days a week with the goal of having every engineering undergraduate using the facility every semester.
