Our Offices Have Moved!

Effective September 26, the SPCS main office has moved temporarily from the Special Programs Building to the office complex of North Court.

This move impacts SPCS administrative staff including deans, professional education, Summer School, marketing and engagement, and administrative and technical services. It also impacts faculty program chairs in Data Analytics, HR Management, Information Systems, Nonprofit Studies and Paralegal Studies. Graduate Education offices are not impacted by this move, as they are already in North Court.

The temporary move is required so our familiar home, the Special Programs Building, can receive a complete internal renovation. We anticipate being in North Court into early summer 2023, after which we’ll celebrate our return to SPB as the culminating event of our 60th anniversary celebration.
