WKU’s Board of Regents committees will meet on Friday to discuss the approval of several academic items as well as men’s basketball head coach Ray Harper’s contract.

Among the items up for approval are the approval of a Health Information Management Baccalaureate program, a graduate certificate in Facility and Event Management and an undergraduate minor in leadership studies.

Harper’s final contract may also be approved. The contract would grant Harper a salary of $375,000 as well as other incentives such as receiving percentages of his base pay for 3,700 or more basketball season tickets sold and NCAA tournament appearances.

Brian Meredith, associate vice president for Enrollment Management, will deliver a spring enrollment report.

Budget Director Kim Reed will discuss budget developments.
