CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Oct. 19, 2011 — The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents will consider the feasibility of constructing a new residence hall on the north end of campus and whether to authorize a contract for architectural and engineering services when it meets Oct. 21.

The Regents also will consider two resolutions declaring the University’s intent to issue bonds to provide $26.75 million in construction proceeds to fund the project. The Board of Regents is scheduled to meet at 1 p.m. in Room 112 of the Douglas C. Greene Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

In another housing-related matter, the Regents will consider authorizing Southeast officials to contract for architectural and engineering services to complete a Greek Housing master plan that could result in a new Greek Village. The Board also will assess related utility infrastructure needs.

The Board will consider restructuring and changing the name of the School of Polytechnic Studies and approving incidental and special course fees for the recently started online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program.

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