Nunemaker Center

Built in 1970 through the generosity of Irene Nunemaker, our unique building’s architecture and artwork reflects the creative energy of the program’s faculty, staff, and students.

As Ms. Nunemaker intended, students meet here in classrooms, recently renovated, and use common areas for discussion, study, and events.
