In 1933, Chaim Weizmann envisioned a European or American-style campus, with buildings opening onto gardens, lawns and groves of trees. Today’s campus, with its architectural jewels sitting on lushly landscaped grounds dotted with outdoor sculptures, is a place that encourages creative thinking and discourse. The proximity of faculty housing to the research centers and childcare facilities helps faculty members to enjoy a full family life and a full research career.
