NORMAN — OU Board of Regents to meet
Renovation, improvements and an addition to fine arts facilities at the University of Oklahoma are among topics to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting today.
The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. in 618 Headington Hall with items submitted by Rogers State University, followed by those of Cameron University and then, those submitted by OU. Due to the prospect of potential inclement weather, members of the OU Board will work diligently to complete the meeting in less than an hour.
The board will consider a recommendation for construction management services related to the Reynolds Performing Arts Center Crawford Music Practice Wing Improvements and Addition project and the Fine Arts Center Rupel J. Jones Theatre renovation.
The Crawford Music Practice Wing includes the construction of a three-story music practice room addition on the north side of the wing, and the Rupel J. Jones Theatre renovation includes upgrades to infrastructure, such as refurbishing the stage lift and lighting and audio improvements.
The OU Board also will consider a proposal for an information technology network infrastructure refresh in for the National Weather Center in support of its academic, operational and research missions.
The next regular meeting of the OU Board of Regents is scheduled for Jan. 28 and 29 in Norman.
