BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A former and longtime UVM president is being honored with a building.

The administration building for the College of Arts and Sciences will now be known as the Lattie F. Coor House. Coor served as UVM's 21st president from 1976 to 1989 and is credited with improving infrastructure and the school's finances during that time. The building at 438 College Street was not owned by the university during Coor's presidency, but has since been renovated to meet both historical and LEED standards. Coor came back to campus Thursday for the big honor.

"Great to be back on this campus. I spent a wonderful 14 years here, my children grew up here and in its own way I did too. I love being here and I love the honor of being affiliated with this magnificent house," said Coor.

Coor later served as president of Arizona State University where there is a Lattie Coor Hall on campus.
