Nov. 15, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's Board of Trustees will consider approving the establishment of a Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems when it meets at 9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16.

Meeting in Room 157 of the Bernhard Center, trustees also are expected to consider the creation of a new street in the University's Business Technology and Research Park and accept gift, grant and personnel reports.

In addition, trustees will hear an update on the Biosciences Research and Commercialization Center, which was founded four years ago to take advantage of Kalamazoo's unique resources and bring promising life science discoveries to the market. The BRCC's executive director, Dr. Jack Luderer, will provide trustees with the report.
