Our Future Is Green

The Lazarus Center is getting a new home! Slated to open in 2025 and posed to be one of the most energy-efficient buildings on campus, Kathleen McCartney Hall will be a sustainable, inclusive, welcoming, and inspiring hub for career development and leadership training. 

With a “purpose-driven design,” the building will enable direct collaboration between the Lazarus and Wurtele Centers for the first time.
