Regents meet on campus next week

A performance-based proposal for allocating state funds to the three regent universities, a $46 million plan to replace the south end of the football stadium and FY15 salary policies and preliminary budget are on the agenda when the state Board of Regents meets on campus next week.

The board will meet Wednesday-Thursday, June 4-5, in the Scheman Building. The full agenda is online. Audio of the public portions of the meeting will be streamed live on the board's website.

Wednesday's session opens at 9 a.m. with the report (PDF) from the task force assigned to propose an alternative formula for distributing the state general university appropriation among the three universities. The task force completed nine months of study and discussion earlier this month.

Also on the Wednesday agenda are budget discussions, including salary policy; the annual report to the board on student financial aid (2012-13 school year); a request to lease one floor of the under-construction Kingland Systems building in Campustown; and requests to create two new centers at Iowa State: Iowa Soybean Research Center and Midwest Transportation Center.

Thursday will be a mostly closed session while the board conducts annual reviews of the institution leaders and board executive director Bob Donley.
