“An environment that inspires leadership-building interaction is a feature that will differentiate the education experience at The Mason School of Business.”—Dean Lawrence B. Pulley
Alan B. Miller Hall is a symbol of the enduring spirit of William and Mary. For the same entrepreneurial spirit that built W&M, the alma mater of a nation, lives on in Miller Hall, the home of The Mason School of Business. In the earliest discussions of Miller Hall, the goal was to create a place of vision, community and innovation.
As the "western gateway" of the W&M campus -- the historic Christopher Wren Building, the oldest college building in the United States, sits on the eastern edge -- Miller Hall is designed to last for generations — at least a 100 years. It was awarded a LEED Gold Certification by the U.S Green Building Council, a testament to The Mason School’s commitment to sustainability.
But in so many ways, what goes inside the building will last for generations, encompassing lifetimes of dreams and aspirations. Miller Hall stands as a physical symbol of the entrepreneurial spirit and vision that manifest in the Mason School of Business.
Named for W&M alumnus Alan B. Miller, and designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, L.L.P., Miller Hall will be a crossroads for learning. Most importantly, it will be the home of a teaching philosophy rooted in active learning, collaboration, mentoring and teamwork.
For the first time in the business school’s history, the undergraduate and graduate programs were under the same roof at the start of the academic year in 2009.
A public dedication was held on October 2, 2009.
