The following items were approved or announced at the July 15 Board of Regents meeting:

Regents will resume meeting in person beginning in September

The University of Michigan Board of Regents will resume in-person meetings starting with the September meeting of the board on the Ann Arbor campus. That meeting is scheduled for Sept. 23 and will take place in the Richard L. Postma Family Clubhouse at the U-M Golf Course, the location used for board meetings before they went virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic. Board meetings on the Ann Arbor campus will continue to take place at the golf course until the meetings move to the Ruthven Building in early 2022, following extensive renovations to that facility.

Exterior repairs at the Law Library and Hutchins Hall

This project will make exterior repairs to the building envelopes, reconstruct the ramp at the south side of William W. Cook Legal Research Library and associated railings, site lighting and site walls, and reconstruct the parapet at the south side of Hutchins Hall. The $3.6 million project will be funded from general fund resources and is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2022.

Backup generators for Medical Science Research Buildings I, II, III

A project at Medical Science Research Buildings I, II, and III will install three backup generators and associated electrical work for critical research loads. Medical School resources will fund the $4.5 million project that is scheduled for completion in fall of 2022.

Harold T. and Vivian B. Shapiro Library third-floor renovation

Approximately 31,000 gross square feet on the third floor of the Harold T. and Vivian B. Shapiro Library will undergo renovations. The work will provide student study spaces to enable collaborative work and community space for digital scholarship that includes methods, authoring, publishing, curation and preservation. This project is estimated to cost $6 million and will be funded by University Library gifts and resources and Office of the Provost resources.  Construction is scheduled for completion in the winter of 2023.
