Murray, KY – Murray State's Board of Regents voted at the December meeting 9 to 1 to demolish Ordway Hall. Ordway was built in 1931 and served as a dormitory, until it was converted into a building of office suites. The building has deteriorated over the years and now faces the wrecking ball because of the price to bring it into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and fire safety requirements. Dr. Dunn addresses the boards decision to demolish the building instead of keeping the building due to its historic nature.
Also, in the conversation Dr. Dunn addresses the long process of gaining re-accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and why it is important.
