URI Harrington Hub for Global Leadership in Communication and Media Celebrates Grand Opening
Today URI celebrated the opening of the Harrington Hub for Global Leadership in Communication and Media, a state-of-the-art facility with the latest editing and audio suites, a theater for film screenings, and other technology that will serve Harrington School students and URI students across various disciplines.
The opening was attended by many government and community leaders, as well as national leaders like Rhode Island’s own Meredith Vieira and John Kirby, Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs and State Department Spokesperson. Also present were many of the supporters whose financial contributions helped make the Hub possible, including Richard Harrington, the URI graduate, venture capitalist and generous donor behind the Harrington School.
