BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) — Baker University has named a top administrator from Gallaudet University as its next president. The private university in northeast Kansas announced the appointment of Lynne Murray on Thursday. She will succeed Pat Long, who's retiring next year. Murray is currently Gallaudet's vice president of development and alumni and international relations. The Washington, D.C., school is the nation's leading university for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Murray was among 71 applicants who visited the Baldwin City campus last month. Presidential search committee chairman Hoot Gibson said Murray stood out for her success in fundraising and university advancement at Gallaudet and Georgetown University, where she also worked. The Maryland native holds a master's degree in marketing from Johns Hopkins University and a doctorate in special education administration from Gallaudet.
