University to dedicate student center

Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University's Board of Trustees will dedicate the Dr. Patricia (McCaslin) Long Student Center at noon, Saturday, May 17, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the Baldwin City campus.

An advocate for student success, Long will retire on June 30 after serving as Baker's president since 2006. She has the distinction of being the university's first female leader in the institution's 156-year history.Susanne-and-Pat-forweb2

She oversaw the development of the $11.3 million Ivan L. Boyd Center for Collaborative Science Education, the largest campaign project in Baker's history. New programs developed in her eight years included Quest, an innovative approach to general studies, Baker's Institute on Leadership for Positive Change and a doctoral program for higher education professionals.

The center includes the Susanne Richardson Teel Dining Hall, Marty Mather Student Lounge and Harter Union.

The dining hall opened in August 2013 and is named for Teel, a longtime Baker benefactor who provided the lead gift for phase one of the student center. She is active with Delta Delta Delta sorority. The student lounge is named for Mather, another longtime Baker supporter and member of Baker's Class of 1949. She was an active in Phi Mu as a Baker student. Harter Union has served as the student union since 1989. It honors the late Edward and Sylvia Harter, who contributed a $2.7 million gift from their estate.

Donor walls inside the center recognize supporters who have shown a strong commitment to Baker. The Pillars honor donors who contributed $500,000 or more. The Circle of Women, which recognizes gifts of at least $25,000, salutes female graduates and donors known for philanthropy and supporting their alma mater.
