    Since 1922, Samford University has delivered life-long business education to students through quality teaching, meaningful scholarship, and servant relationships, imbued by its Christian commitment. In order to sustain this legacy for the next generation, Samford needs a next generation building that will equip them for the future ahead.

    Located directly behind the Harwell G. Davis Library and to the east of Mamie Mell Smith Residence Hall, the new Brock School of Business building will provide much needed classroom, office and meeting room space for the Samford and Birmingham community. A breathtaking glass atrium will be the center of this five-story building, but the true heart of the building will be a revived sense of learning, innovation and opportunity.
