Mabel Lee Hall 2

The CEHS building changed names to Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall along with renovations. 

The new building replaces Mabel Lee Hall on 14th Street, between Vine and W streets. Mabel Lee Hall was dedicated in 1968 as the Women’s Physical Education Building and renamed in 1977 to honor Lee. The intramural sports fields directly east of Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall will retain the name Mabel Lee Fields, in recognition of Mabel Lee’s contributions to the field of physical education.

Final Result

Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall, a 126,590-square-foot, four-story facility, features classrooms, meeting spaces, offices, labs, a 400-seat auditorium, and a link directly to Teachers College Hall. The facility became the new home for the CEHS dean’s office; the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies; the Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education; and the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools. 

“This building is a direct reflection of Nebraska’s investment in teacher preparation, and we’re extremely appreciative of the state’s support,” Jones said. “In Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall, the next generation of teachers and other professionals will discover their passions and generate new ideas to enhance the lives of individuals, families, schools and communities and strengthen the relationships among them.”
