CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., April 15, 2003 - The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents will consider setting room and board rates for the 2003-2004 academic year when it meets April 16 in Robert A. Dempster Hall.

The meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Glenn Auditorium.

At the start of the meeting, Gail L. Robertson of Poplar Bluff, Mo., will be sworn into office as a new member of the Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents. Circuit Judge William Syler will administer the oath of office. She will replace Kim Mothershead of Benton, Mo., vice president of the Board of Regents, whose term expired Jan. 1. Robertson's term will run through Jan. 1, 2009.

The Regents will consider a proposal to increase residence hall fees for fiscal 2004 by an average of 4.04 percent, dependent upon the residence hall in which a student lives, and to raise board rates by an average of 3.05 percent, dependent upon the type of meal plan purchased by the student. The Regents also are expected to set rental rates for non-traditional housing on Washington Street and to set the fiscal 2004 Residence Life budget.

The Regents will consider approving a schedule of major capital projects and maintenance and repair items for fiscal 2004. Capital projects on the schedule include the second phase of the Multi-Modal Transit Facility.

In other action, the Regents will consider approving a five-year academic calendar, an industrial technology 2+2 program to be offered at multiple off-campus sites, an engagement letter for the annual audit, and resolutions of honor for University retirees.

The Regents are expected to discuss fiscal 2004 higher education appropriations, after which they will hear the President's Report. Included in the President's Report will be the Spring 2003 Four-Week Census Report; a progress report on contracts and Facilities Management projects; and a River Campus update. The report also will include information on: the Missouri Tourism Commission's approval of Southeast as a Welcome Center Affiliate; a Lift for Life Academy student awarded the Lt. Governor's Service Award; and Southeast being featured on the AACSB Web page. In addition, the President's Report will include a copy of the "Experience 2002" Southeast Missouri University Foundation annual report, and a report on the Missouri Commission on the Delta Regional Authority.

The Regents will receive several informational materials, including the Artists Equity Association Catalog, correspondence regarding the St. Louis Charter Academy, and the Bridge to Success Report.

The Board will consider a motion to go into a closed session for appropriate considerations. When the open session reconvenes, the only item on the agenda will be consideration of a motion to adjourn.
