New UTD School of Management
Building To Be Dedicated Dec. 3

The new 204,000-square-foot School of Management Building at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) will be formally dedicated in ceremonies Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Among the dignitaries expected to attend the event are Mrs. Rita Clements, vice chairman of the University of Texas System Board of Regents and former first lady of Texas, and Dr. Teresa Sullivan, U. T. System executive vice chancellor for academic affairs. The ceremonies will take place in the $38-million facility's Charles and Nancy Davidson Auditorium.

The building, located at the southeast corner of Drive A and University Parkway on the UTD campus and designed by the architectural firm of Omniplan, features 29 classrooms, two large computer labs, the 350-seat auditorium, break-out spaces for undergraduate, graduate and executive education student groups, desktop Internet access in every classroom, wireless network access throughout, audiovisual and online learning support in every classroom and conference rooms and office space for all 96 of the school's faculty members.

Enrollment at UTD's School of Management, which was founded in 1975, has increased 92 per cent over the last seven years to more than 4,300 students. Until the new building opened in August, the school's faculty, staff members and students had been using no fewer than seven buildings on the UTD campus. The new facility allows all of the school's operations to be housed under the same roof for the first time.
