Drexel Dedicates Transformed Quad and Korman Center Addition

A dedication ceremony on June 6 officially marked the opening of the addition to Drexel’s Korman Center and surrounding “Quad.” Located at the heart of Drexel’s campus, the Korman Center and its surrounding green space have served as a University landmark for decades.

The Forum for Inclusive Culture (I-Forum) was able to comfortably fit 24 people in the Center’s Ida Chen Room for a recent meeting, thanks to a collapsible glass window wall that was pushed aside to allow for more space. This handy feature will be especially useful when the center is used to host other meetings, events, guest speakers and movie nights.
