More than $5 million has been raised and pledged. Historic Carriger Hall, formerly a men’s dormitory, is being renovated to accommodate high-tech classrooms and a new spacious, multi-tiered outdoor gathering space for the entire campus to enjoy.

Employees, students and members of the Board of Trustees celebrated the kick-off for the Carriger Hall renovation on October 29.

The School of Business will transform the College’s undergraduate business department and emphasize the value of work and the development of creative, problem-solving leaders. Executive education, certificates and online programs are also being developed. (See Spring 2021 issue of the Emory & Henry magazine.)

“This is nothing without our students,” Dr. Emmett Tracy, founding dean of the School of Business, said during the kickoff. “Our students are incredibly gifted and I’m proud to be part of their education.”

Tracy noted the past and current business department faculty as the foundation for this new venture. “The College is lucky to have had their dedication and passion for the College and for their students,” he said.
