A virtual celebration and dedication of the new space, located on the third floor of the Chamberlain Center, was held February 1 and was attended by about 100 alumni, family, faculty, staff and friends. The Lindley Center is dedicated to Houghton’s pre-law students as a place for study and research, student-faculty meetings, pre-law events and home to a special pre-law library and law school preparation materials.
The space is named for Dr. Kay Lindley, who was a long-time professor of History and Chair of the Division of Social Science. A beloved professor and friend to many, she is fondly remembered for her contribution to the lives of over 100 Houghton graduates who, through her encouragement and rigorous preparation, went on to have careers in the legal profession.
President Shirley Mullen ’76, who spoke at the dedication, noted that “we are especially grateful to those alumni who have made this space possible through their generous gifts. In addition to the physical space itself, their gifts are making possible programming in the Lindley Center as well as fellowship and scholarship support for students interested in pursuing these fields of study focused on the law and Constitution.”
