Education & Technology Center
Opened in August 2005, Holy Family’s 62,000-square-foot signature building contains general classrooms, computer labs, and classrooms specially designed to model primary and secondary classroom instruction for the University's education students. These model classrooms feature adaptive technology that allows students with certain disabilities, such as vision or hearing impairment, to be integrated fully into a regular classroom. This provides Holy Family's education graduates with valuable experience using adaptive technology in a classroom environment. Additionally, the facility contains a 200-seat auditorium, three conference rooms, a café, student and faculty lounges, and faculty and administrative offices for the School of Education. It also contains classroom, studio, and gallery space for the University's art program.
Modeled after the labyrinth embedded in the floor of France’s Chartres Cathedral since the 12th century, the labyrinth at Holy Family is located between the Library and the Education & Technology Center. With only one route leading to the center and back out again, the Labyrinth can be used as a tool for meditation and growth.
