CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Oct. 17, 2002 - The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents will consider a proposal to balance the University's fiscal 2003 and 2004 budgets and several related issues when it meets at 9 a.m. Oct. 18 in the University Center Ballroom.

The budget proposal was presented at a University-wide open forum Sept. 25 following several open and focused forums held earlier this semester.

In conjunction with the budget proposal, the Board will consider several related matters, including:

  • changes to department names due to restructuring
  • a special dietetics course fee
  • an addition to the Facilities Management Service Center
  • engineering services and renovation of Parker Pool to house Printing and Duplicating

The latter two items are necessary as a result of the University Foundation selling a building at 221 N. Fountain Street that currently houses the University's Printing and Duplicating, and Central Receiving operations. Developers say that site will be used for parking in connection with the renovation of the Marquette Hotel, just across the street. The University is proposing an addition to the Facilities Management Service Center at 610 Washington Street that would accommodate Central Receiving operations when they are relocated. In addition, the University is proposing closing Parker Pool and using that space to relocate Printing and Duplicating back on campus.

Also on the agenda is a motion to approve the final interpretive plan for the Southeast Missouri State University Museum developed by Lord Cultural Resources and the approval of an appointment to the River Campus Board of Managers.

The Regents will consider approving an additional energy conservation day, an appointment to the Show Me Center Board of Managers and Faculty Merit Pay Guidelines. The Board also will consider a resolution of honor for the Verizon Academic All-America Women's Cross Country Track and Field Team.

The Board also will hear the President's Report, which will include a report from Ross McFerron, Student Government president; the official fourth week census enrollment report for the fall 2002 semester; and reports on the Bridge to Success program, a Resolution of Encouragement - Future Funding for Education, Regent Brad Bedell's Young Alumni Merit Award from the University of Mississippi, and progress on contracts and Facilities Management projects.

In addition, the Regents will receive a number of informational materials.

A motion to go into a closed session for appropriate considerations will be the final item of business on the agenda. When the Board reconvenes in open session, the final item on the agenda will be consideration of a motion to adjourn.
