Developers and Arizona State University officials reassured attendees that the future Thunderbird School of Global Management building would maintain the school’s spirit, embrace multiculturalism and be a welcoming area for everyone downtown at the latest community meeting.
The meeting was held Thursday for the community to share aspirations for the school’s new home with its developers, according to Sanjeev Khagram, dean of the Thunderbird School. The new building will be located south of the Beus Center for Law and Society on Polk Street between First and Second streets.
Thunderbird was previously stationed at ASU’s West campus in Glendale after merging with the university in 2014. It is currently operating out of an interim location at the Arizona Center, located on 3rd and Van Buren streets. The new structure is set to open in 2021.
