First Harvard Campus Building to be Named After a Woman is “Topped Off”
May 12, 2015
Harvard Business School (HBS) will soon have its first educational building named in honor of a woman, and also the first to be named after a Chinese-American. As featured on the ‘China Daily’ newspaper, the four-story executive hub that is the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center just completed a major milestone in its construction schedule, and will become a nurturing home for the more than 10,000 students from across the globe who attend HBS executive programs. Funders Dr. James S.C. Chao and the Chao family foundations envisioned not only a building where educational achievement would be strengthened, but also an inspiring space where leaders from across the world could come together and develop the relationships necessary to address global issues in a peaceful and productive way.
