Benedictine University in Lisle recently dedicated its new Daniel L. Goodwin Hall of Business at a blessing and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
"The addition brings students, educators and business leaders together to learn, lead and innovate for the future of the dynamic business industry," James Melsa, chairman of the university board of trustees, said. “This building will offer Benedictine students an educational experience like no other. It will enhance the university’s partnerships with corporations around the world, attract top-tier students, educators, speakers and business leaders that will bring the marketplace to Benedictine and help the university to shine on an international scale."
Sandra Gill, dean of the College of Business at Benedictine, said the new building will provide the university with modern amenities and premier facilities.
“We believe that offering our students greatly improved learning facilities and academic programs that are relevant is the right thing to do," Gill said. "Our students at all levels are already way out front in adopting values-based leadership practices through our curricular and co-curricular efforts. The new building is a lasting testament to our commitment to prepare highly competent values-based business leaders."
Named for the vice chairman of the university’s board of trustees, who provided the lead gift, the Daniel L. Goodwin Hall of Business is the largest classroom building on campus.
