Employees, students and members of the Board of Trustees celebrated the kick-off for the Carriger Hall renovation on October 29.

Executive education, certificates and online programs are also being developed. (See Spring 2021 issue of the Emory & Henry magazine.)

“This is nothing without our students,” Dr. Emmett Tracy, founding dean of the School of Business, said during the kickoff. “Our students are incredibly gifted and I’m proud to be part of their education.”

Tracy noted the past and current business department faculty as the foundation for this new venture. “The College is lucky to have had their dedication and passion for the College and for their students,” he said.
