Leighty-Tabor Science Center
Chemistry, biology, physics, and nursing are located in the 83,000-square-foot Leighty-Tabor Science Center located on the north side of Millikin's 75-acre campus.
Opened in 2002, the building contains numerous chemistry laboratories, instrument rooms, and classrooms. Students can take advantage of spaces for individual and group study and research, computer work, discussions, and meetings. In addition, the Chemistry Department's instrumentation is current within the industry. Chemistry faculty offices are located on fourth floor.
The building is named after John and Ula Leighty, Millikin University chemistry and biology graduates, respectively, and Purvis F. and Roberta Tabor. Dr. Leighty helped commercialize the production of antibiotics such as penicillin. Mr. Tabor was an enterprising businessman whose Tabor Grain & Feed company merged with Archer Daniels Midland in 1975.
