The third floor is reserved for offices for the dean of the business school and faculty members, conference rooms, technology lab/classrooms, several faculty lounges and a balcony/reception area.
The center’s unique design allows the conference center to double as a Federal Emergency Management Agency safe room in case of a disaster like Hurricane Katrina by providing short-term shelter. The safe room functionality is possible because of a $1.46 million grant awarded to ECU by FEMA.
Miles Associates of Oklahoma City is the architect for this project.
