A New Name for Widener’s Newest Building

October 27, 2011

The handsome edifice we have been referring to as “the new academic building” will soon be dedicated with a more memorable name: Founders Hall.

Constructed according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, the building is the university’s first “green” academic building.  The architecture of the home of the School of Nursing and the Oskin Leadership Institute compliments that of Old Main.

A dedication ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 4 in the lobby of Founders Hall and the ceremony will be webcast live.

  1. It will be interesting to see if the military ranks of the founders are included with any material about them at the dedication or if Widener will again downplay its military connections to the past!!
