Lehigh celebrated the completion of its new 74,000-square-foot Business Innovation Building Friday afternoon with a short ceremony and toast, followed by tours for the campus community.
In the Tauck Family Lobby, attendees stood shoulder-to-shoulder under high ceilings as Georgette Chapman Phillips, the Kevin L. and Lisa A. Clayton Dean of the College of Business, Lehigh President Joseph J. Helble ’82 and numerous other speakers reflected on the construction and importance of the building to the Lehigh community.
“We thought about the building requirements, the architectural drawings, but we always were thinking about flexibility and adaptability,” Phillips said. “Putting the students first drove the building. This building had to be all about learning.”
