We already have the best minds: Now let's give them the best tools.
The caliber of Baker University students strolling across its beautiful campus every year is exceptional. Nearly one-fourth of those students spend their days immersed in science and mathematics at Mulvane Hall, preparing to make an immediate impact on the world around us. They are accepted into medical schools at a remarkable rate and touted by our colleague institutions as among the highest-achieving graduate students.
The students are here. The professors are here.
With an emphasis on collaboration, our pedagogy is what larger institutions can only dream about. The one-on-one relationships faculty members foster with our students produce original research and interdisciplinary conclusions worthy of presenting at national science and mathematics conferences. Our faculty is passionately driven to bring out the absolute best of the young men and women we will one day call our doctors, nurses and engineers.
It's time to transform our dreams into reality.
And soon, facilities that match the quality of the students and mentors working inside them will be here, too. Baker’s administration, with the support of the Board of Trustees, is thrilled to announce its plans to renovate and build onto the historic Mulvane Science Hall—an initiative that has been envisioned and revisioned for many years. A beautiful campus landmark since the 1920s, Mulvane is in serious need of an external face-lift and internal overhaul, and through careful planning and an accurate assessment of our financial capabilities, we now have the ideal proposal to fit our needs. The time is now to transform our dreams into reality. We are moving forward, and we invite you to join us.
The project will cost $10.3 million, with approximately $3 million funding a 9,000-square-foot addition and the remainder going toward completely renovating existing Mulvane. Upon completion of the project, our exemplary science, mathematic and information technology students will work in new, industry-standard labs with updated equipment. Additionally, we’re expecting the return on investment for this project to be immediate: Our Office of Admission is confident the new Mulvane will prove to be the X-factor in recruiting even more of the best and the brightest prospective students.
