With new space, new leadership, and an expansion of capabilities, the Divsision of the Social Science's Local Business Center is poised for great things in 2015. This past year, Adrienne Thomas took the reigns as Manager and has already begun steering the LBC in new directions. One of the biggest changes is a drastic upgrade in space for the team in the 1155 Building on South campus. The building currently houses the Harris School of Public Policy, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, National Opinion Research Center, IT Services, and full service café. The move was completed on December 19 and will allow for increased square footage and ADA acessible offices.
