The Mulvane Transformation was recognized in the $8-10 million renovation category. The transformation included renovating Mulvane Hall, originally constructed in the mid-1920s, and the 9,000-square-foot addition of the Ross and Christine Hartley Hall. The facility, now known as the Ivan L. Boyd Center for Collaborative Science Education, is the largest capital project in Baker's 155-year history.

Baker broke ground on the project in October 2011 and opened the Boyd Center at the start of the fall semester in August 2012. It houses classrooms and labs for biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and information technology.

Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
