Ryan Center for Business Studies

Ryan Center Dedication

Ryan Center BellThe ring of a brass bell resonating on campus on Saturday, April 29, 2017 marked the official opening of the Arthur F. and Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies. Prominent alumnus Arthur F. Ryan ’63 & ’90 Hon. and his wife, Patricia, donated $5 million to create this new home for the Providence College School of Business (PCSB). With their gift, Dore Hall, a former residence hall, was renovated as the center of the new structure, named the Arthur F. and Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies. The new home for the PCSB provides state-of-the-art facilities conducive to collaboration, student-faculty interaction, active-learning, and entrepreneurial thinking.
