Texas State University System Regents to Consider ASU Construction Projects
Regents of the Texas State University System (TSUS) meeting Thursday and Friday, Nov. 7-8, in Beaumont are expected to award construction contracts for the addition of a third floor to the Porter Henderson Library at Angelo State University.
The board will meet at 9 a.m. Thursday and at 10:15 a.m. Friday in the Map Room of the John Gray Center on the campus of Lamar University in Beaumont.
The library expansion is expected to cost more than $4.5 million. Additionally, regents will consider awarding a contract exceeding $950,000 for the renovation of the Center for Human Performance. Work on both projects is expected to begin at the end of the fall semester.
Additionally, the board will discuss entering into contracts for the architectural and engineering services for mechanical and cosmetic renovations to both the Administration Building and the Academic Building. Board members will also consider entering into an agreement with the Texas State University System Foundation, Inc., to facilitate the development, construction, renovation, expansion and operation of student housing and associated parking on campus.
Other items to be considered will include ASU's 12th class day report of enrollment; routine budget adjustments; acceptance of donations to the university; course additions, deletions and changes; routine personnel matters; authorization of out-of-country study programs in Germany, Greece and Scotland; and a nonsubstantive change in the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Child Development and Learning program.
The TSUS board serves as the governing body for ASU and the other eight institutions making up the system. The other institutions are Lamar University, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lamar State College-Orange, Lamar State College-Port Arthur, Sam Houston State University, Southwest Texas State University, Sul Ross State University and Sul Ross State University-Rio Grande College.
