Dr. Tracy with his newest project—inside Carriger Hall.

Founding Dean of E&H School of Business Named

Emory & Henry is remodeling Carriger Hall to house the new School of Business on the Emory campus. The first step toward that end was the demolition of Matthews Hall to make room for significant upgrades to Carriger and an updated outdoor space for the entire campus to enjoy. Until the renovation is complete, McGlothlin Street Hall will be home to the Business Department.
