Plans to build a new, state-of-the-art building for the Barton School of Business got a boost with a $10 million donation.

Once built, the 136,000-square-foot complex will replace Clinton Hall, constructed in 1970.

It will be designed to foster collaboration among students, faculty and partners in the business community, as well as provide students with more internship opportunities.
