The College of Education and Human Sciences will celebrate the completion of Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall with a ribbon-cutting on Sept. 29.

The program, which is open to the university community and the public, begins at 10 a.m. on the west side of the building located at 840 N. 14th St. Remarks will be shared by Chancellor Ronnie Green, CEHS Dean Sherri Jones, and other special guests. Following the program and ribbon-cutting, there will be an opportunity for guests to take photos and self-guided tours of the building.

Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall, a 126,590-square-foot, four-story facility, features classrooms, meeting spaces, offices, labs, a 380-seat auditorium and a link directly to Teachers College Hall and Henzlik Hall. The facility is the new home for the CEHS dean’s office; the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies; the Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education; and the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools.

The building is named in honor of Carolyn Pope Edwards, who was an expert in early-childhood education and served as a faculty member at Nebraska for 18 years. Her life mission was raising the quality of young children’s education by understanding how they develop and thrive cognitively, socially and emotionally.
