Special election for higher education: Dec. 13
On Tuesday, Dec. 13, Arkansans will have the
opportunity to decide on two ballot proposals, with one of them being very
important to ASU -- the Arkansas Higher Education Technology and
Facility Improvement Act of 2005. Approval will mean $9 million for
two major projects at ASU: joining the research E-corridor and a new
classroom building to replace Wilson Hall. For details, see Dr. Les Wyatt's
report in last week's First Friday.
