This former tenant office space now serves as the new home of Monroe’s graduate schools of management and criminal justice. The color scheme evolved from one we developed earlier in 2010 for the department of athletics offices located on the east side of the same building. Campus standard finishes were upgraded selectively to convey a character appropriate for graduate studies. Eight classrooms, including two hybrid rooms for learning at conventional tables and computer work stations, and a large, divisible multi-purpose room, are included in the facility. A dramatic lounge space welcomes graduate students into the space. In keeping with the college’s instructional philosophy, faculty offices are located within the facility, in close proximity to the instructional space. Base building improvements, including new mechanical systems and unit, were included in the project, which was designed and constructed in record time.
