The University of Rhode Island (URI) recently held its first tour of the Harrington Hub for Global Leadership in Communication and Media facility, worth $6.5 million.
The tour included a congressional delegation, university officials and national media leaders. The new hub is located on the first floor of historic Ranger Hall, first built in 1913.
“Our vision at URI is to be globally competitive and engaged,” URI President David Dooley said. “And thanks to the generosity, support and leadership of Dick Harrington and his wife, Jean, and other generous donors, we celebrate the opening of this facility today, which gives our students, faculty and staff the latest tools to enhance their learning, research and outreach to build on their already outstanding reputations as global leaders in this complex and ever-expanding communications environment.”
Now the Hub will offer faculty as well as students up-to-date technology for audio suites and editing suites, state-of-the-art classrooms, film screen theater and more. It will serve students involved in film and media, communication studies, public relations, journalism, rhetoric, writing, information studies and library sciences.
“We now have the technology and learning spaces that make the Harrington School as strong as any program in communication and media studies,” Dooley said.
