This fall, the Ford School moved into its newly-constructed home on the corner of State and Hill Streets. The 80,000 square foot Joan and Sanford Weill Hall was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects in the tradition of the Michigan Union and Michigan League. Features include a 200-seat auditorium, a 2-story reading room, stone terrace and courtyard, sophisticated educational technology, and custom woodwork. With its new space, the Ford School is adding an undergraduate major, growing its faculty, and expanding the scope of its educational programming. Light refreshments served. Student tour guides stationed around the building. Free and open to the public.
