USU Breaks Ground on $42-million Business Building

Press Release

August 29, 2013

Logan — Jon M. Huntsman, Sr., helped break ground Aug. 26 for Huntsman Hall, a new $42 million business building that will be named for him on the Utah State University campus. He described the new building as a place where integrity and ethics would be emphasized.

Jon and Karen Huntsman and a number of other dignitaries were at the ceremonial groundbreaking for the 117,000-square-foot addition, which will wrap around the south and west sides of the George S. Eccles Business Building.

Huntsman was the lead donor for the new building, which is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2015. The building will feature 21 classrooms and 21 meeting rooms. Huntsman Hall will include several centers of excellence focused on entrepreneurship, leadership and international business, school officials say. Two thirds of the building’s funding comes from private donors and one-third from state sources.

Huntsman spoke at the event along with Jeffrey D. Clark, the founder, chairman and CEO of J.D. Clark & Company, who also was a major contributor to the building.

Dean Douglas D. Anderson described early design deliberations when funding challenges forced school officials to consider scaling back the facility. Jeff Clark argued in favor of the larger structure that would be needed to meet the needs of future generations.

“Jeff drove us to believe in our dream that we could have a classroom building second to none, where faculty and students could work collaboratively to create entrepreneurial opportunities,” he said.

USU President Stan Albrecht said the construction of the new building launches “a new era,” calling Huntsman Hall “a beautiful state-of-the-art building that will assist us as we move to an even higher level of achievement.”
