Harmon Hall Kickoff Event Thursday

September 12, 2008

Lindenwood University plans to renovate and expand its beloved Harmon Hall, which will soon be the new home of the university’s School of Business and Entrepreneurship. A kick off event is scheduled from 4-5 p.m. Thursday, September 18.

After remarks from city, county and Lindenwood dignitaries, a symbolic groundbreaking will occur and refreshments will be served.

“We want all those who have a stake in this– current and prospective business students, board members, faculty, staff and administrators– to know exactly what this building initiative entails,” said President James D. Evans. “It’s about the redoubling of our efforts to produce the best and brightest talent for our region.”

Named for the family of late Lindenwood Chairman of the Board Ray Harmon, Harmon Hall has housed the university’s Fine Arts Department since 1969. With the 2008 opening of the school’s new Center for Fine Arts and Performing Arts, Harmon Hall was designated as the location for the School for Business and Entrepreneurship.

The two-year construction project will nearly double the building’s size, adding 28,000 square feet to the 31,000-square foot structure. Expansion plans include the addition of nine classrooms and several seminar halls, breakout rooms and office spaces. The existing interior also will be updated and remodeled, and a new façade added to the entire building.

“The refurbished Harmon Hall will give our business students a sense of cohesion and identification,” said Ed Morris, dean of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship. “It will provide state-of-the-art facilities and technologies to prepare our students to successfully compete and contribute in today’s highly sophisticated economy.”

Each year, Lindenwood University confers more than 700 graduate and undergraduate degrees covering a dozen business majors. More than 90 percent choose to work in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area.
