Baker University plans groundbreaking for Mulvane Hall

October 6, 2011

Baker University will celebrate the groundbreaking of the addition to Mulvane Hall on the Baldwin City campus as part of the $10.3 million Mulvane Transformation Project. The public is invited to the event, set for 1:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 7, at 413 Sixth St.

Mulvane Hall, constructed in the 1920s, houses classrooms for biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and information technology. The renovation to Mulvane and the 9,000-square-foot expansion to the east of the facility will provide new laboratory space, classrooms and student collaborative areas.

Construction will continue throughout the 2011-12 academic year.

In August, the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation in Tulsa, Okla., committed $750,000 toward the Mulvane Transformation Project. The challenge grant was the largest single gift Baker has received from a foundation and the fifth largest one-time contribution to the University since its founding in 1858.
