MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
July 14, 1960

The State Department of Administration has asked for submission of a long-range building program. Mr. May and Secretary Miller presented a revision of the program presented last year with the recommendation that the Board authorize its submission.

On motion by Dr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Huff, it was voted to approve the list as submitted with an additional request for MSU-O. (This list is on file with the material for this Board meeting.)

Mr. Varner requests that the Board authorize the development of plans for an intramural building for Michigan State University-Oakland to cost not to exceed $1,500,000 to be financed on a self-liquidating basis through the segregation of a portion of the student fee. This will permit the planning of the structure and the development of possible plans for financing it through the sale of revenue bonds, all to be submitted to the Board at a later date.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Mr. Stevens, it was voted to approve the above item.

Mr. Varner presented a progress report on planning under way at Michigan State University-Oakland contemplating the possibility of a calendar based on trimesters rather than quarters with all students expected to be in continuous attendance for a college year beginning in early September and extending through July. It may eventually be recommended that this program become effective for the freshman class entering in the fall of 1961.
