Chicago Tribune: U. of C.'s Public Policy School Gets New Building, New Direction

The University of Chicago announced Wednesday afternoon that its public policy school — the institution's youngest and one of its less prominent professional schools — will be moving to a larger location, part of an effort to expand its mission.

Two major donations, totaling $32.5 million, will go toward the Harris School of Public Policy's move to the new space. A $20-million gift, the largest in school history, is from Dennis Keller, a university trustee and co-founder of the DeVry Education Group. The school's new building, a renovation of what was once a residence hall at 1307 E. 60th St., will be named the Keller Center.
