Gatton Hosts Crowe Horwath
On Tuesday, June 28, the Gatton College of Business and Economics hosted representatives from Crowe Horwath LLP, including CEO James Powers, and Managing Partner of their Lexington offices Steve Jennings, for a tour of the new Gatton building. The delegation from Crowe Horwath was joined by Gatton's Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and Outreach Kenneth Troske, and Director of Development Greg Casey.
“It was a real pleasure to be able to show off the new classroom made possible by Crowe Horwath to the members of their organization,” said Troske. “It was especially satisfying to be there with Steve, who really put in a lot of time and effort to make this accomplishment possible.”
The classroom is one of the new Gatton building’s state-of-the-art cluster classrooms. Housed to seat 45 students, the modern learning space has the ability to transform from a lecture focused classroom to a clustered group learning environment. The flexibility of the classroom’s seating configuration was designed to make conditions optimal for unique and unparalleled learning experiences.
“It is our new classrooms that are putting the college among the top of the best business buildings in the world,” said Troske. “Having Crowe Horwath’s support is truly helping us to modernize how we teach, learn and conduct research here at the college.”
