About the Stinson Student Advancement Center
Creating a Community
SBA has invested more than $1 million to create a student-centered community in its Elliott Hall home by consolidating student services to encourage career enrichment, education, networking 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 room that offers tools for global interactions, collaborations, alumni-student connections, project sponsor-student interactions and business leadership forums.
Together with a separate Network Security Instructional Lab, an executive and professional education room and the new Elliott Hall Café that serves coffee and sandwiches, phase two of the Elliott Hall renovation is complete.
