The Bast Center is the home of the Education Department at Roanoke College.
Faculty and staff offices are located on the second floor of the Center. Classes are held throughout the building and an updated computer lab allows students to practice technology skills necessary for the PreK-12 classroom.
Paul Hanstedt was one of the campus leaders when RC revised its general education curriculum. He published "General Education Essentials: A Guide for College Faculty" earlier this year. As a Fulbright Scholar, he advised universities in Hong Kong.
