Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center at Harvard Business School Nears Completion
May 11, 2015
Complete with a tree and signatures, the final beam was recently hoisted atop the new Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center at Harvard Business School. The spacious Center, funded by a magnanimous gift from Dr. James S.C. Chao and the Chao family, is expected to be completed next year.
It will house classrooms, conference rooms, dining facilities and be a unique and nurturing space in which to bring together a large international executive student body to learn and collaborate with Harvard Business School professors and graduate students. These students will be the international leaders of tomorrow.
Many of the Chao family members in attendance expressed their joy at being able to honor the memory of their mother in such a way, a woman who dedicated so much of her life to strengthening the quality of education, providing opportunities to access education for those unable to afford it, and strengthening cross-cultural ties between America and China.
