Barton Kyle Yount Center

Named after the school’s founder, the Barton Kyle Yount Center was built in 1971 to house the Thunderbird library. It’s original purpose has changed over the years, and in 2011 it underwent a major remodel made possible by the generous donations of Francis Najafi, class of ‘91, alumnus and former Thunderbird Board of Trustees member. The building is now home to the Najafi Global Mindset Institute, the Distance Learning Center, Yount Auditorium, experiential learning classrooms and the school’s experiential learning classroom studio.
