Drury University President Dr. Tim Cloyd speaks at a ribbon cutting Thursday for Drury’s new classroom space at 128 East Commercial St.


Drury University will begin classes, including law enforcement courses, in Lebanon in June in new quarters at 128 E. Commercial St., just across from Drury’s Lebanon office at 122 E. Commercial St.

The occasion was marked Thursday with a Lebanon Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting and remarks from Drury officials. Lebanon site coordinator Millie Gann said the new home is something Drury has been working on a long time.

“Drury in Lebanon has waited a long time to find a home,” Gann said. “We have this beautiful landscaped courtyard to look at every day and we have four classrooms we worked very hard to provide our students.”

Drury President Dr. Tim Cloyd said students taking classes in the new facility will have the advantage of a personal connection with instructors.

“We give our students individualized and customized experiences. We are like a boutique rather than a mass online program. We have connections with human beings and that’s what’s critical,” Cloyd said.
