Plans are underway for a new student center to be built near Allen Fieldhouse. The building will include an exhibit displaying James Naismith’s original rules of basketball, recently donated to the University by investor David Booth.
“Housing this document on our campus gives the KU community tangible evidence of our rich basketball history,” said Sarah Morris, President of the Student Endowment Board.
David Mucci, director of the KU Memorial Unions, said the building plans are still in the early stages. An architect has yet to be determined, as well as the full functions of the building. The project will be paid for by KU Endowment and private donors.
