The Chancellors Room

Chancellors Room - Brookings 300

During the celebration of Washington University’s Sesquicentennial in 2003–04, the 14th chancellor, Mark S. Wrighton, converted Brookings 300 — originally built as the university chapel — into the “Chancellors Room.”

Hanging in the room are portraits of the first 14 men to hold the title of chancellor.
