Trustees okay state-required spending priorities

Oct. 31, 2007

KALAMAZOO--The renovation of Western Michigan University's Sangren Hall remains the University's highest campus improvement priority and will once again top the list of top building priorities WMU submits to the state for consideration in Michigan's official capital outlay request process.

During its Oct. 12 meeting, WMU trustees approved the list and also approved Sangren Hall as WMU's single capital outlay request. The state requires all state universities to annually submit a five-year comprehensive master plan report with all projects prioritized. In addition, universities are required to submit one request for state funding, which for WMU, as in years past, is the renovation of Sangren, a 44-year-old instructional facility in the middle of WMU's central campus.
