J.T. Tai Global Studies Building

The J.T. Tai building, originally known as the International Studies Building, was completed in 1991 as a faculty offices building for the Department of International Studies. In the early 2000s, the building housed the Garvin Center for Cultures and Languages of Global Business and became popularly known as the Garvin Center. It was formally named the J.T. Tai Building for Global Studies in 2012 as the result of a multi-million dollar gift from the J.T. Tai Co. Foundation led by Thunderbird Trustee Emeritus, F. Richard Hsu. A Chinese pilot who trained in Arizona during World War II, Hsu returned to live in Arizona in the 1990s.
