“It shows great teamwork and partnerships across Auburn University,” Assistant Director of Maintenance for Facilities Management Bruce Arnold said.”We know the mission is to educate. You have to have classrooms to do that. We in facilities felt we needed to do that to support the college of business as they use their building to support many colleges on campus.”>
