Stauffer-Flint Hall – A Renewed Hub for News
Michelle Tevis

KU’s Stauffer-Flint Hall reopened its doors to students, faculty and staff this past January, showcasing a $5 million renovation that is changing the way journalism and mass communications students learn.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, the 120-year-old home of the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications got a much-needed renovation. The space was officially opened with a ribbon cutting and an up-close look at the newly designed spaces and building improvements. John and Barbara Stauffer, Brian and Sarah Bracco and retired journalism professor Susanne Shaw were among the donors in attendance. Front and center were the prominent new entryway and awning, now on the north side of the building, facing Jayhawk Boulevard.

The energy in the building was palpable as students, faculty, staff and donors toured the cutting-edge broadcast production studio on the first floor as well as updated teaching and study spaces on the third floor. The upper floor’s facelift created open, flexible learning areas and a seminar room, complete with new technology. The renovations also made it possible to bring the University Daily Kansan back to the J-School building.
