Special election for higher education tomorrow
Tomorrow, Arkansas voters 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. To view the complete ballot title on the Arkansas Secretary of State's web site, go here.
