BU Board of Trustees approve Mulvane project, visitation hours

Story by Kyle Davis

The Baker University Board of Trustees met Friday on the Baldwin City campus for the final time of the spring semester.

The board approved a number of motions, including the Mulvane addition and renovation project, at the trustees’ business meeting.

The trustees passed a motion involving campus housing visitation hours. While the visitation hours will remain the same in Irwin Hall, Gessner Hall and the New Living Center, the hours in the Horn and Markham Apartments will be left to the discretion of the roommates. The members of each apartment will decide the visitation hours for their room while filling out their roommate agreements at the beginning of the year.

While Hoot Gibson, chair of the board of trustees, will remain the chairman next year, the board will welcome in a new member, 2002 Baker graduate Brandon Scarborough.

“Brandon has been extremely involved with us from almost day one,” University President Pat Long said. “He’s been a big supporter of the Gala, he has been active with the alumni committee. He will be, I think, an outstanding choice for us.”

The trustees will be back on Baldwin City campus in October for the first meeting of the 2011-2012 school year.
