Leaders from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and The Delta Air Lines Foundation opened the Delta Leadership Hub – a state-of-the art classroom and event space on Oct. 10.
The space redesign came as part of a $3.5 million gift from The Delta Air Lines Foundation that also endowed Goizueta’s leadership program, a premiere three-pronged leadership development program focused on academic, experiential and reflecting learning for Delta Leadership Coaching Fellows. Through this program, second-year MBA students are able to practice and improve their leadership, team-building and feedback skills, vital to the workplace. They are also able to engage with and mentor first-year MBA students as a part of this initiative.
“The Delta Leadership Hub will be the focal point of our leadership initiatives and numerous other events,” said Erika James, the John H. Harland Dean of Goizueta Business School. “It’s more than a new style, it’s an infusion of technology our faculty, students and any number of guests will enjoy for years to come.”
Boasting a dramatic entrance with a glass storefront and the Delta Leadership Hub logo, the classroom features the ability for instructors and students to connect their devices wirelessly using Mersive Solstice technology. The foyer area includes entrance halls or, “jetways,” designed with clean lines and multiple display monitors.
“We are proud to open this premiere space for leadership learning with Goizueta,” said Tad Hutcheson, Senior Vice President of The Delta Air Lines Foundation. “Giving back to the communities where we live, work and serve is core to Delta, starting with our hometown of Atlanta.”
