Mission and Identity

The Stephen and Dolores Smith Hall

In 2010, the Williams College of Business moved from Hailstones Hall to the newly constructed Stephen '68 and Dolores Smith Hall. With its signature 2-story atrium, scrolling stock tickers, high-tech classrooms, Wall Street-style trading room and state-of-the-art Bloomberg financial database terminals, Smith Hall keeps Xavier at the forefront of excellence in business education.

Along with the construction of Smith Hall and the Conaton Learning Commons, a new entrance to campus was formed and named Francis Xavier Way.
