By Heartland News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents will meet Tuesday to consider approving the proposed fiscal 2011 operating budgets for the University and its auxiliary units among other things.

The Regents will meet at 8:30 a.m. June 22 in Glenn Auditorium on campus to consider a biennium capital budget request for fiscal 2012-2013 to be submitted to the Missouri Department of Higher Education.

The Board will consider two resolutions that would lay the groundwork for a future bond issue to help fund renovation of Southeast's science facilities, Academic Hall infrastructure upgrades and major deferred maintenance and repair projects on the campus.

They will also consider several consent items, including academic program changes - a new minor in fire arts entrepreneurship; addition and deletion of options for the bachelor of science/bachelor of arts degree in the chemistry program; addition of an option for the master of science in criminal justice and deletion of the master of music education degree.

Other items include the consideration of a Faculty Senate bill concerning the College Level Professional Development Policy and a policy in the Business Policy and Procedures and Manual for protecting health information.

The Regents will hear the President's Report, an enrollment management report for Fall 2010, a progress report on contracts and Facility Management projects, an update on power plant savings, an AQIP Systems Portfolio Status Report, a report on the Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education and an overview of the 2010-2011 season at Southeast's River Campus.
