Edwards Hall! - Mennonite College of Nursing

Welcome to Edwards Hall!
Edwards Hall History:
The majority of Mennonite College of Nursing’s faculty and staff work in Edwards Hall. Edwards Hall
was named after Richard Edwards, the second President of our University from 1862-1876. He was
originally hired as a math instructor in 1861. The building that is Edwards Hall was opened in 1920,
but the building was renovated in the early 1960’s and renamed in memory of Edwards. Edwards was
the man who coined the term “Grandest of Enterprises” for the teaching profession. That is also the
name of a book that details our history. Capen Auditorium was named after Charles L. Capen in 1928.
He attended Harvard and was on the Normal School Board.

Computer Lab - Room 305
Edwards Hall, Room 305 is the computer lab for Mennonite College of Nursing.
Updates for this lab are made possible in part by funding from State Farm
Insurance. All of the nursing programs utilize the computer lab – whether it be for
technology training, orientation, research, video conferencing, or basic computer
Office of Student and Faculty Services
Uptown Crossing Building
Due to the increase in faculty this fall and lack of
office space at Edwards Hall, the Office of
Student and Faculty Services (OSFS) moved out
of Edwards Hall in October and relocated their
offices to the Uptown Crossing Building. Several
Faculty members also moved to this location.
This move is temporary, and after the labs move
out of Edwards Hall to the new Clinical
Simulation Lab next summer, the first floor of
Edwards Hall will be renovated to office space.
It is anticipated the OSFS office and faculty will
move back to Edwards Hall in the fall of 2012.
