Elevating our School requires more than innovative programs and top-notch faculty. Cutting-edge facilities that enable student learning and project-based work are also needed. We have made important strides toward creating a vibrant and collaborative learning environment. Renovations are planned for successive floors of Rockwell Hall over the next few years, starting with the current work on the 9th floor.
Indeed, the entire 9th floor of Rockwell is undergoing a major renovation this summer, with construction lasting into the fall 2016 semester. In May, work began to gut the entire floor. When completed, the floor will include over a dozen new offices for faculty plus sorely needed conference and work spaces to support student-faculty interactions. Other improvements include raising the ceilings, making extensive use of glass to bring in more natural light, installing new sprinkler systems and updating HVAC.
Next, the plan is to turn our attention to renovating the 4th and 6th floors, in that order. In the meantime, we’ve launched the Campaign to Transform Rockwell Hall. A wide range of naming opportunities are available for both facilities and programmatic support.
