Roe Green Center Groundbreaking Celebrates New Beginning
When completed in 2010, the Roe Green Center — an estimated $12 million, 70,000-square-foot project — will unite the School of Theatre and Dance under one roof for the first time since the two programs merged in 1994.
Green's $6.5 million gift — the largest capital donation in the history of Kent State University — will enable theatre and dance students to learn in state-of-the-art classrooms, studios and labs. It also will allow students in both programs to collaborate in new and exciting ways in a performance space dedicated to student creative projects and new works.
In this week’s video, John Crawford, associate dean for the College of the Arts, and Roe Green, a native of Aurora, Ohio, and Kent State alumna, discuss the exciting new center and the benefits it will bring to students of both divisions.
