Board of Regents Brief

The Board of Regents’ committees met Friday at noon in the Cornelius A. Martin Regents Room in Mass Media and Technology Hall. 

During the meeting, the Doctor of Psychology in Applied Psychology was approved.  Provost Gordon Emslie said it will be the university’s fourth doctoral program if approved in the full board meeting in October.

 Brian Meredith, Chief Enrollment and Graduation Officer, gave his fifth week enrollment report.

“International enrollments are looking strong,” Meredith said.

Brian Kuster, executive director of Housing and Residence Life, gave his report on HRL occupancy.  He said there are no more male spaces available in dorms on campus, but there are still some female rooms open. 

The new campus apartments have drawn many students who moved off-campus to move back on-campus, he said.

The Board of Regents will meet again on Oct. 31.
