As a long-time member of the Antioch Board of Trustees he has overseen the construction of buildings for Antioch University here in Yellow Springs and across the country.
Bill Hooper oversaw the construction of the Antioch College Amphitheater. In 1995 he oversaw the completion of the renovations for the current WYSO studios.
