Introducing: Stinson Student Advancement Center
You're invited to be part of the celebration and grand opening of the SBA's Stinson Student Advancement Center, Monday, Dec. 13, at 5 p.m., second floor, Elliott Hall. Join us in person or online through our live Webcast which will be available via a link from the SBA home page at www.sba.oakland.edu beginning at 5:30 p.m. that day. To join us in person, please RSVP to Lisa Desmet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event will celebrate phase two of the Elliott Hall renovation, as the SBA continues transforming its spaces to help transform student lives. This phase continues the effort to create a feeling of community among SBA students -- whether they are residential or commuter -- by consolidating student services to encourage career enrichment, education and socialization.
The state-of-the-art Stinson Student Advancement Center supports the three tenets of the SBA -- integrative thinking, experiential learning and global understanding -- through a student interaction room that offers tools for global interactions, collaborations, alumni-student interaction, project sponsor-student interactions and business leadership forums. Together with a separate Network Security Lab, an executive and professional education room and a new cafe that serves coffee and sandwiches, SBA has invested more than $1 million to support its student-centered goal.
The Stinson Student Advancement Center is named for Ann and Craig Stinson, longtime supporters of Oakland University and the School of Business Administration.
