N. Eldon Tanner Building
|N. Eldon Tanner Building|
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, United States.
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, a 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.
The Tanner Building was completed in late 1982 and dedicated on April 5, 1983, by Gordon B. Hinckley. Today, the seven-story, 120,000 square feet (11,000 m2) granite building houses Marriott School classes, professors' 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.
