About Berglund Hall
Berglund Hall began as a dream over eight years ago as a home for the College of Education. That dream was made possible by a number of supporters, including the James and Mary Berglund family and the Gates Foundation. This new $12 million building now serves as one of the premier educational facilities in the northwest and is designed to achieve a LEED Gold certification. It includes a Child Learning and Development Center, offering preschool education to faculty, staff and community families. It also provides a teaching and research facility for students and faculty in the College of Education as well as other campus programs. In addition, the Berglund Center for Internet Studies and the Department of Business benefit from the increased space, technology-enhanced classrooms and opportunity for strategic program growth. Of particular note is Zane’s Playroom, named for Zane Harris and designed as an early-childhood exploration center where parents can bring their preschool children to explore, learn creatively, play and socialize with other children.
