BGSU TRUSTEES ANNOUNCE PRIVATE GIFTS, APPROVE NAMING OF NEW COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION BUILDING
Private gifts were announced at the BGSU Board of Trustees meeting Feb. 17 that will reshape the Bowling Green campus as well as the student experience in years to come. The board also took action on room and meal plan rates, changes to the academic calendar and new campus facilities.
“This is an exciting time in the history of Bowling Green State University,” said President Mary Ellen Mazey. “Our enrollment is increasing and the tremendous support we are receiving from alumni and friends is helping us continue to build our strength and offer students a memorable education that prepares them well for their careers after college.”
The College of Business Administration will have a new building. With a $5 million leadership gift from Robert and Patricia Maurer of Bowling Green, the college will move from its present location into Hanna Hall. The building will be extensively renovated to include high concept, high tech learning facilities and amenities appropriate to a world-class business school.
The trustees approved the renaming of the building as the Robert W. and Patricia A. Maurer Center in honor of the longtime supporters of the University. Robert Maurer is a 1965 graduate in accounting.
The board also authorized the first $5.7 million of the projected $49 million total cost for design and pre-construction costs to begin the project, which is scheduled for completion in June 2020.
