The Department of Political Science is housed in John K. Roessner III ’61 Hall: The Center for Business and Civic Leadership. Albright’s newest academic facility, Roessner Hall features 30,000 square feet of state-of-the-art classrooms, offices and meeting spaces. Political Science shares the building with the Department of Business, Accounting & Economics, the Center for Excellence in Local Government, and the Center for Community Engagement. Among the goals of the building are to enhance synergy and collaboration among these related departments and to showcase the interdisciplinary, collaborative approach that is at the heart of the Albright educational experience.

Faculty offices in Roessner Hall provide truly active and collaborative learning opportunities, and are equipped with technology that allows for collaborative, investigative learning. To promote increased interaction between students and faculty, break-out spaces are located near faculty offices and incorporate transparency and natural light that permeates both areas. The building also includes break-out spaces around classrooms, allowing for more intimate interaction and work spaces for classroom learning to spill out into the public realm, and a global media lounge and current periodical reading room, providing resources for students to stay current in their fields, encouraging discourse and debate, and giving rise to a community of learning.
