Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for its new Business Learning Community, the future home of the Terry College of Business, April 26 at 1:30 p.m. on the lawn of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

The event is free and open to the public. It coincides with the launch of the Building Terry Campaign, which seeks to raise $90 million in private funding to benefit Terry College facilities, faculty and academic programs.

The groundbreaking celebrates the first phase of construction of the Business Learning Community-constructing Correll Hall, a building named for Terry College alumnus Pete Correll, chairman emeritus of Georgia-Pacific Corp. The building will house graduate programs, college administration, classrooms and an innovation lab.

Speakers will include Correll; Dan Amos, CEO of Aflac and chairman of the Building Terry Campaign Cabinet; UGA President Michael F. Adams; Robert T. Sumichrast, dean of the Terry College; and Terry MBA candidate Michael Betts.

The 305,000-square-foot Business Learning Community, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, will be located at the corner of Baxter and Lumpkin streets. Construction will be in three phases, with the first phase beginning later this year.
