Whitman Building Gets Facelift This Summer

Whitman Building Gets Facelift This Summer

The Whitman School building is being renovated throughout the summer to spruce it up, renovate existing space and update classroom technology.

By early July, all 22 classrooms will be equipped with the latest technology for faculty and students, including new projectors, improved audiovisual capabilities and the ability to use Skype or Adobe Connect, as needed.

In addition, the Flaum Grand Hall where many events take place, will be renovated, as well as the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship’s Couri Hatchery student incubator.

“The Couri Hatchery, located on the first floor of the Whitman building, will be expanded and renovated to create a more collaborative create space for our student entrepreneurs,” said Terry Brown, executive director of the Falcone Center.

The Couri Hatchery reached 100 members this past academic year, the most ever.

Finally, the terrazzo flooring in the stairwells of the building will be replaced. By the time students return in the fall for the next academic year, the Whitman building will be ready!
