The Kirner-Johnson Building — also known as KJ — houses the offices for faculty in the social sciences. It’s home to Hamilton’s highly regarded writing and oral communication centers, as well as the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.
The building features a comfortable atrium popular with students, team rooms for working on group projects, and five tiered case-method classrooms with the latest technology to support teaching and learning.
Whether it’s during the academic year or the summer, Hamilton students collaborate with professors on original research. Often their work results in articles published in peer-reviewed journals or in presentations at national conferences.
