Project Updates

In the Lacy School of Business, we believe that where a student learns is as important as what a student learns. That is why we're excited about our new 110,000-square-foot home for the Lacy School set to open in fall 2019. Through creative learning environments that connect students to any industry, we will enhance our programs and better equip Lacy students with the skills to succeed in today's ever-changing society
