State-of-the-art business building coming to SNC campus

The Donald & Patricia Schneider Family Hall will serve as the new home of the Donald J. Schneider School of Business and Economics and a hub for business education in northeast Wisconsin, with a terrace along the Fox River and reimagined classrooms and workspaces.

Thanks to a lead gift from the Schneider family, work will begin on the signature building – with Workshop Architects of Milwaukee serving as the designer and Miron Construction as the general contractor – in winter 2023 and the Schneider Family Hall will be completed in time for fall classes in 2025.

The 45,000-square-foot, multi-use facility will be situated at the western end of the Claude Allouez bridge in De Pere and feature:

  • Classrooms and workspaces designed for contemporary learning
  • Space for executive education and conferencing opportunities
  • A connected terrace for gathering along the Fox River

It will be home to the college’s undergraduate and graduate business and economics programs, including data analytics and a new sports management program, as well as SNC's Center for Exceptional Leadership.

The new building will be constructed on the current site of the college’s Pennings Activity Center which was first established in 1923 as Nicolet High School.
