The new home for the College of Business will be a think tank environment, bringing students, faculty and industry together in a collaborative, inspiring space that is forward-thinking in its design and daily application. Business students will have the kind of attractive environment that compels them to work, engage, study, ask hard questions, challenge themselves and work together.

The new building:

  • is a dual-tower, five-story structure across from Sikes Hall in the heart of campus;
  • houses 176,000 square feet of space to accommodate growth, encompassing more than twice the square footage of Sirrine;
  • allows students and faculty to be centrally located in one building compared to the 5 buildings currently;
  • possesses the technological capabilities of a top university, with the capacity to evolve as technology changes;
  • facilitates and enhances the partnership between academics and industry, providing opportunities for cutting-edge and applied research;
  • creates a flexible think tank with post-doctoral fellows, adjunct and visiting dignitaries and scholars, graduate students and permanent faculty that tackle the major business and social issues;
  • is a model of sustainability with quality daylighting, recycled or locally sourced materials; and
  • is open for the 2020-2021 academic year.
