    Mission accomplished--Schwab Hall

    Schwab Hall (Renovation and Expansion)


    The Schwab Hall Renovation and Expansion project was completed in less than a year (opening in fall 2016). Thanks to the kind support of our donor base, no debt or student tuition dollars were used to finance the project. The funding for the approximately $7.6 million project came exclusively from generous donations. 

    The home for the Shields School of Business, Schwab Hall houses  flexible classrooms of various styles, including lecture halls, seminar space, and areas designed for group work and collaboration. In addition, the building provides office and meeting rooms for the dean and associate dean of the School, private offices for faculty and staff, small and large conference rooms, and dedicated space for adjunct and visiting instructors. With state-of-the-art classrooms, a new HVAC system, a new elevator, a new finance and data analytics computer lab, LED lighting throughout, a stock ticker in the lobby, and lecture capture technology, Schwab Hall's future is bright.
