In a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 30, the School of Management celebrated the opening of its new Undergraduate Learning and Community Center, a destination for more than 2,900 undergraduates in the school to connect with their peers and develop skills for lifelong success.
Located in the lower level of Jacobs Management Center, the 5,800-square-foot space includes tutoring facilities, three classrooms, a glass-walled breakout room and the Frank and Marilyn Clement Undergraduate Community Hub, named for the center’s lead donors.
Seattle residents Frank, BS ’66, and Marilyn Clement were present to cut the ribbon before an audience that included faculty, staff, students and alumni.
“The Undergraduate Learning and Community Center is a place for our undergraduates to gather and feel at home from the moment they step on campus,” said Paul E. Tesluk, interim dean of the School of Management.
“The state-of-the-art center will help attract the best students to the School of Management, further cementing our reputation as one of the best business schools in the world,” Tesluk added.
Within the facility, undergraduates can take advantage of a variety of services to help them meet their academic goals. Center-certified tutors lead one-on-one and group tutoring for several courses, and an ESL coach is available to assist international students with their English skills and adjustment to American culture. Study groups, open work sessions and workshops also are offered.
