If you’ve been down in the dumps over Dr. Anthony Fauci never getting his glorious due, I offer news bound to perk you eminently up.
One of the many buildings that made up the College of the Holy Cross’s Integrated Science Complex was a multi-building structure. Now the joint’s getting made over, at least in the way of its name.
Massachusetts will have a lot to be proud of on June 11th when the Anthony S. Fauci Integrated Science Complex opens its doors.
In search of a moniker, how’d they end up fingering Fauci? It’s probably because he’s an alumnus of the private Jesuit-Catholic school.
A press release enthuses, “Fauci, a classics major, has led the nation’s response to health crises for nearly four decades.”
Vincent D. Rougeau, President of Holy Cross, is in inspiration
“Dr. Fauci vividly personifies the distinctive characteristics of a Holy Cross education, and we know his life and work are already inspiring the next generation of empathetic servant leaders.”
The famed physician’s a part of your household:
Fauci ’62, Hon. ’87, is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Chief Medical Advisor to the President and the nation’s top allergy and infectious diseases expert. Over nearly four decades in the role, he has advised eight U.S. presidents and become a household name as he led the nation’s COVID-19 response efforts the past two years.
It is fitting that President Vincent pays the tribute:
“We are thrilled to celebrate Dr. Fauci in such a public and enduring way. It’s fitting that Dr. Fauci’s name will adorn a complex designed to foster integrated learning across multiple academic disciplines – the kind of broad, collaborative and holistic thinking one needs to manage health crises such as HIV/AIDS, Ebola and Zika, or the current COVID-19 pandemic.”
It’s a relative rise to the surface — as noted by The College Fix, the doctor’s been a bit MIA:
The honor comes at a time when Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the U.S. president and the nation’s top allergy and infectious diseases expert, has come under increasing scrutiny from lawmakers and the public at large over not only his handling of the COVID pandemic strategy but also his past work and research funding decisions.
You can repeat it again.
Just last month, Republican Sen. Rand Paul introduced an amendment to eliminate Fauci’s position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and instead break the job into it three separate national research institutes.
As a reminder of less lauded elements of his leadership, here’s a mystifying montage:

Even though he wears flip-flops and a pair of sandals, the medical man is dressed in millionaire moccasins. In fact, he’s the highest-paid government employee in America.
Even movie stars are able to get along with the healer:
Critics may possess one nitpick about the science center’s renaming. He seems to have suggested that Dr. Fauci It is Science:
He told MSNBC, “A lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science…”
The name might be a sign of inevitability.
However, Dr. Fauci deserves congratulations for the eponymous The Science Science Complex.
Were his midterms interrupted by a permanent pandemic that made him unavailable for camera? I’d see it’s likely.
America’s waiting with bated — and fabric-obstructed — breath.
