Capital improvement projects and an optional voluntary early retirement program make up a light agenda for Friday’s Arkansas State University Board of Trustees meeting in Little Rock.  

Trustees will consider a resolution that would replace the roofs on the Fowler Center, the College of Communications and Education, and the Military Science Building on the Jonesboro campus.  That project is expected to be more energy efficient and will be cost about $1.3 million dollars. 

A separate resolution calls for campus-wide energy improvements at ASU-Mid South in West Memphis.  The improvements include lighting retrofits, water and waste management strategies, chiller upgrades, and installing numerous other energy control mechanisms.  The cost would be around $1.5 million dollars. 

Another resolution would allow Arkansas State University’s Jonesboro campus to offer voluntary retirement incentive programs for those who are at least 60 years old and have served 10 or more years in continuous full-time employment at A-State.  The program would start in Fiscal Year 2018.  

Arkansas State University-Mid South will also request for the approval of the Certificate of Proficiency in Quality Technology, with curriculum focused on quality control.  The meeting will be held at the ASU-System office in Little Rock at ten am.  KASU Public Radio will carry the meeting live on Facebook.
