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 access.
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.
