BALDWIN CITY, Kansas — A top administrator at the nation's leading university for the deaf and hard of hearing has been sworn in as the new president of Baker University in northeast Kansas.

The Lawrence-Journal World reports ( reports that Lynne Murray was inaugurated Friday as the school's 29th president at a small, invitation-only ceremony on the Baldwin City campus.

Murray has been leading Baker since July 1. Plans to inaugurate her Oct. 30 were delayed after the death of a Baker student the day before.

Murray previously worked at Gallaudet (gal-uh-DET') University in Washington, D.C., serving as vice president of development and international and alumni relations.

She replaces Pat Long, who retired in June.

Baker will hold an open inaugural event for Murray on April 16, 2015.
