Architecture expressive of a first-class business education

Located at a main campus gateway, Rohrer makes a striking first impression when visiting Rowan’s campus. Its forward-looking exterior reflects the University’s rising stature as a premier research university and provides an inspiring welcome to the top-rated entrepreneurial programs within.
A luminous central hub at the heart of the building is both a crossroads for the University as well as a gathering place that encourages close collegial interaction between students and regional business leaders.

While much of the building’s exterior relates to Rowan’s traditional architecture, the northern façade presents a more contemporary aesthetic.
Natural light floods the building through generous glazing.
The Hub is a partitionable lounge, meeting, and study space—the building’s heart and crossroads.

Supporting four centers of excellence

Rohrer’s ambition is to educate and prepare students with real-world immersion, entrepreneurial thinking, and responsible leadership. The new building features four business Centers, each with their own dynamic learning environments:

  1. Center for Professional Development with breakout rooms for mentorship, coaching, and interviews with industry partners.
  2. Center for Innovation + Entrepreneurship featuring an experimental lab and makerspace where students can develop and test business ideas
  3. Center for Responsible Leadership with flexible, state-of-the-art classrooms and collaboration spaces
  4. Center for Experiential Learning where students collaborate with real-world business leaders in project-based learning environments
