The N. Eldon Tanner Building, also known as the TNRB, is a building that houses classrooms and administrative offices for the Marriott School of Management on the Brigham Young University (BYU) campus in Provo, Utah.


On March 18, 1980, during a devotional assembly, BYU president Dallin H. Oaks announced a decision by the Board of Trustees to construct a new campus management building that would be named in honor of N. Eldon Tanner, Canadian politician and counselor to four presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Business school administrators say that the business school's main building was named after Tanner because he was known in Canada as "Mr. Integrity"—a title wished upon every Marriott School graduate.[1][2]

The Tanner Building was completed in late 1982 and dedicated on April 5, 1983, by Gordon B. Hinckley.[3] Today, the seven-story, 120,000 square feet (11,000 m2) granite building houses Marriott School classes, professor offices, and administration. A 76,000 square feet (7,100 m2) addition, costing $43 million and funded by donations, was dedicated on October 24, 2008 by Thomas S. Monson.[4]
