On June 16, 1994, construction of a 15,600-square-foot classroom building began on the CSUSB campus, funded in part with a gift of 100 million yen (nearly $1 million) from the Yasuda Institute of Education. The building stands as a concrete marker of the special relationship the two institutions share. For California State University, San Bernardino, it is a symbol of how two diverse cultures and institutions can work together successfully toward the common goal of international education and global peace and understanding. It is a rare and beautiful gift to the campus for which CSUSB is eternally grateful.
The one-story classroom and conference building handles some 30,000 annual College of Extended Learning students as well as the hundreds of Yasuda students who participate in various programs at CSUSB. Five classrooms, a multipurpose room that can be divided into four smaller rooms, a language lab, two computer labs and a student lounge and patio area are among the building's features.
