CMU trustees to consider Detroit presence for Global Campus/CMU

President's contract, grad student housing rent, bargaining on agenda
CMU Board of Trustees meeting
The Central Michigan University Board of Trustees will hold its first meeting of 2013 this Thursday. The 9 a.m. meeting in the President’s Conference Room of the Bovee University Center is open to the public.
Trustees will consider a resolution that requests authorization for the university to rent approximately 4,000 square feet of space in Detroit. The space would support Global Campus and enrollment management and student services primarily, as well as government relations, development and external relations, institutional diversity, the president’s office, libraries, and CMU’s academic colleges.
The facility would include one large room for class instruction and other meetings.
The lease is not to exceed $143,000 a year with funding provided by university reserves.
The board also will be asked to grant the president authorization to ratify and sign collective bargaining agreements with CMU Public Broadcasting employees, office professionals, supervisory-technical employees and the Graduate Student Union once contracts are negotiated.
Other items to come before the CMU trustees for discussion include:
  • Apartment rental rates for the new graduate student housing,
