The building which houses the majority of the School of Business classrooms, meeting rooms, and offices is Founders Hall, which was built in 1979. The building remains virtually the same as when it was constructed, which means there are out-dated rooms utilized by students, faculty, and staff each and every day. State-funded renovations are not able to keep pace with the need for well-planned, efficient classrooms.
Attractive and up-to-date facilities are important in recruiting and retaining the highest caliber students. By assisting in upgrading classrooms, offices, and conference rooms, you directly impact the quality of a student's experience in the School of Business. Upgraded classrooms, student study rooms, and meetings rooms will greatly improve the learning environment in the School.
Gifts for capital projects help fund one-time needs. For example, state-of-the-art "Smart Classrooms" can assist faculty in delivering up-to-date information and resources during class time. Upgrades in seating and visual aids create an atmosphere conducive to learning.
Naming opportunities exist for all renovated spaces. Please contact the Office of Development in the School of Business for more information about how you can assist in providing the finest facilities for today's students.
