E.F. Hackman, president of the Southern Union and college board chair, guided the university through building upgrades, faculty development and the first senior college accreditation in 1950. Hackman Hall, also completed in 1950, honors this influential man. The building was originally built to house the science departments, but after recent renovations, the School of Religion moved to Hackman Hall.
The Lynn H. Wood Archaeological Museum was recently developed to house an extensive teaching collection of Near Eastern artifacts donated by Dr. William Dever of the University of Arizona. The museum opened in the fall of 2004.
