Update from the ASU Board of Trustees meeting
On Friday, Dec. 19, the ASU Board of Trustees met to discuss several items on the agenda and approve resolutions. Among those were: a $43.2 million bond issue, a new university pet policy, revisions to the Promotion, Retention and Tenure Policy and several new degree programs.
  The board approved the bond issue to complete the purchase of acreage and buildings adjacent to the campus, and to complete several high priority projects. The land which will be purchased from the Arkansas State College Foundation (commonly called the Kays Foundation), is south of Johnson Ave. and east of Caraway Rd. (behind the Benton Center). The high priority projects are: to renovate Chickasaw and Delta Hall, install a chilled water infrastructure, construct Phase II of family housing in Indian Village (92 apartments), and construct an 840-bed residence hall to replace Twin Towers and Delta Hall. 
  For more details, see Pet Policy and Promotion, Retention and Tenure Policy.
  The resolution was approved for ASU-Jonesboro to offer an associate of applied science in food technology, master of public administration -- graduate certificate in criminal justice, and a doctorate in philosophy in molecular biosciences. These proposals will now go to the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board for review.
