The new home of the Krannert School of Management

Rawls Hall houses 13 electronically equipped classrooms, a professional career center, 25 breakout rooms, distance learning facilities, and sophisticated computer labs.

The building is named for Krannert master's alum, Jerry S. Rawls. Rawls, the president and chief executive officer of Finisar Corp., donated $10 million to the Krannert at the Frontier Campaign. The gift is the largest in Krannert history and one of the largest at Purdue. In recognition of his generosity, the Purdue Board of Trustees voted in 2000 to name the new Krannert facility, Jerry S. Rawls Hall.

The Jerry Rawls Hall was dedicated on October 2nd, 2003.
