The University of Mary Washington dedicated the Hurley Convergence Center in honor of President Richard V. Hurley on Friday, April 15, 2016. The ceremony also featured the unveiling of President Hurley’s official presidential portrait.

UMW’s Board of Visitors voted last fall to rename the Information and Technology Convergence Center for the University’s ninth president, who is retiring in June.

Hurley oversaw the planning and construction of the $40 million Convergence Center. The 72,000-square-foot building opened in the fall of 2014, and is home to the Speaking and Writing Centers, the Digital Auditorium and the Digital Knowledge Center.

The official presidential portrait, painted by Richmond-based Loryn Brazier, was paid for with private funds, thanks to a special Mary Washington First Campaign gift from Marceline Weatherly Morris ’50 and Elmer Morris, Jr. ’50. The 40 x 30 oil-on-linen portrait will be permanently exhibited in the President’s Gallery, adjacent to Dodd Auditorium in George Washington Hall. The President’s Gallery will be dedicated at a special event on June 3, during Reunion Weekend.
