    GSB prepares for its new home

    Ground was broken last weekend for the new $125 million Graduate School of Business complex, which will bring together the GSB staff, faculty and students, who now occupy four buildings. Consolidating its activities under one roof will allow members of the GSB faculty and student body to collaborate on ideas, conduct research, and gather for meetings and social functions as a community. Nearly 400 guests attended last Saturday’s ceremonial groundbreaking at the construction site at south Woodlawn Avenue and 58th Street.

As a symbolic gesture, University officers, GSB faculty and alumni who have pledged gifts to the project officially broke ground at site.
