HURON - The Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees moved ahead on two renovation projects during their Friday meeting at the Firelands campus.
The board approved spending $1.6 million on architectural and engineering work for the renovation of Moseley Hall, which will be a new home for science, math and technology on campus. The total cost of the renovation is expected to be just over $23 million.
The trustees also approved moving ahead with the renovation of the College of Health and Human Services in the wake of moving campus health services to the Falcon Health Center.
According to the university: "Along with programs in criminal justice, communication sciences and disorders, nursing and gerontology, the building will house the Food and Nutrition Program and will serve as the future home of Forensics and Laboratory Sciences, in conjunction with the construction of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Information facility on campus."
The total cost of the renovation is pegged at $12.2 million, which includes furnishings.
In other action, the trustees approved:
• A new master's degree in applied geospatial science. The program is a collaboration among the departments of geography, geology, and environment and sustainability. According to the university: "The program will focus on using geospatial tools to solve problems in the natural and social sciences, with a particular focus on energy."
• New residency requirements that will allow more students to live off-campus. Those students include: students who have been out of high school for more than two years, former military members and others with particular circumstances. The move is seen as a way of attracting more transfer students.
