Lake Union Headquarters Prepares to Relocate
In May of 2011, Andrews University purchased the Lake Union Conference (LUC) office complex, which is adjacent to the Andrews campus. This location is now the home for the new School of Distance Education, formerly Griggs University along with other University departments. The sales agreement allows the LUC office staff to temporarily consolidate their offices into the original building on U S Hwy 31 until a new office can be constructed. When completed, Andrews University will take full possession of the former LUC buildings and land.
An important step in the relocation took place on Monday, February 27, 2012, when a lengthy process to purchase 8.6 acres of land was completed. The new office location is on the west corner of M139 and Red Bud Trail, just one mile west of the Andrews Campus. LUC president Don Livesay comments: "Our new office will embrace the efficiencies of a smaller size and newer construction. We have intentionally chosen to remain close to Andrews University to keep our valued relationship strong."
