Developing a More Competitive Future

Tuskegee University is committed to taking bold strides in the future advancement of its CBIS.

The University is finalizing a major campaign to construct a new facility for the business program. With four stories and approximately 45,000 square feet, the new facility will quadruple the available space for classrooms, laboratories, offices and lounges. It will be outfitted with the latest in technological advancements including "smart" classrooms, and state-of-the-art laboratories and research space - all designed to provide the best simulation of real-world business concepts and applications.

Equally important as the physical structure are the programs that the new facility will accommodate and expand. The College has recently undertaken program initiatives in the areas of information system security, high performance computing for science and engineering, supply chain management, and an international business certificate program that requires students to take a combination of business and foreign language courses.

The new building will serve close to 500 students and enable the computer science faculty to work in close proximity to other business faculty for more integrated learning and research opportunities.

Upon completion of the building, the College of Business and Information Science will be permanently named in honor of Dr. Andrew F. Brimmer, Chairman of the Tuskegee Board of Trustees. Dr. Brimmer is a highly respected economist, academic and business leader, with numerous notable accomplishments, including being selected as the first African-American to serve as a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (1966-1974). Dr. Brimmer is a teacher and scholar whose interests include monetary policy, international finance and economic development in the African-American community.
