A Saginaw Valley State University building will be renamed in honor of the university's former president. Future students at SVSU's Regional Education Center will soon know the venue as the Eric R. Gilbertson Hall.
Board of Control Chairman Jeff Martin said it's a way to recognize Gilbertson's impact during his 25 years in the role.
"He was very committed, and really responsible for building this whole campus," Martin said. "The recognition isn't big enough if you ask me, but certainly something that (is) definitely an easy decision to make."
Gilbertson retired earlier this year and plans to continue teaching classes at SVSU.
A formal naming ceremony will be held later this fall.
