Construction Begins for New Mandel Center Building
The Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations will be housed in a brand new building to open in the summer of 2007. Site work for the building to be located on Bellflower Road, a block east of the Peter B. Lewis Building, began in early August.
“The new building represents a tremendous step forward for the Mandel Center and it is also representative of the stature the Mandel Center has as a leading national program,” said Susan Eagan, executive director of the Mandel Center. She went on to say that “we are deeply grateful to the Mandel Family for its generosity and sustained commitment to the Center.”
The new building will offer expanded opportunities for scholarly exchanges, as well as graduate and executive education locally, nationally and internationally through onsite and distance learning classes. For the first time, students, faculty and staff will have their own new two-story building where Mandel Center classes will be held, as well as having facility space for university-based and community meetings.
More information including renderings of the new building and ongoing photographs of the buildings progress can be found on the Mandel Center website.
