The David M. Rubenstein Forum seeks to meet the need for a University-wide resource to facilitate scholarly and academic discourse on campus. The venue will support and promote inquiry, the open exchange of ideas, and the power of academic, interdisciplinary convening. The Forum will be located on the site at East 60th Street between Woodlawn Avenue and Kimbark Avenue. It will serve as a place where scholars can gather and exchange ideas through activities that range from talks and workshops to multi-day conferences that span academic disciplines. The facility will provide spaces and amenities that are not currently available on campus, including highly collaborative, well-appointed meeting and event rooms commensurate with the types of conferences, special events, workshops, and meetings that University faculty and academic departments host. The project has a sustainable design target of LEED Silver.
