Board members will consider adopting budgets for all TSUS institutions for the 2003-04 fiscal year that begins Sept. 1. In other ASU fiscal matters the board will consider changing nine physical therapy course fees; establishing an English non-course based remediation fee in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts; standardizing rates for resident assistants; and accepting five major gifts to the university.
In other business, the regents will consider a food service contract for the West Texas Training Center; consultant contracts for two building projects; and a building contract for the Food Safety and Product Development Lab Addition to the Management, Instruction and Research Center. The regents will also review a request to purchase 175 computers to upgrade those available in student use areas.
The board will review ASU's summer enrollment figures; consider adding 10 courses and deleting 16 from the university's curriculum; and review routine personnel matters.
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.
