PULLMAN, Wash. — The Board of Regents of Washington State University will discuss a set of comprehensive benchmarks to measure the university’s progress at the board’s regularly scheduled meeting at 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 28 in Room 405 of the Lighty Student Services Building on the Pullman campus.

The meeting agenda is available online at http://www.regents.wsu.edu/Agendas-Notices/050128Agenda.doc.

WSU President V. Lane Rawlins and other university leaders have been working to establish a set of goals for the university in a number of areas, including undergraduate enrollment;  student quality; student, faculty and staff diversity; faculty compensation; research and scholarship; graduate programs; learning outcomes; development; and international programs.

During the meeting, the university is scheduled to receive the Washington Governor’s Award for Excellence in Energy Management from the state Department of General Administration. The award cites energy management strategies used by WSU as an example for other public institutions to follow.

The board will also be asked to act upon several capital projects, including a $1.31 million addition which would double the size of the cooler used to store and age cheese at the Creamery Annex on the Pullman campus; a $1.3 million exterior restoration for Wilson Hall on the Pullman campus; and a $2.5 million project to extend Loop Road and expand the north parking lot on the Vancouver campus.

Committees of the Board of Regents will meet Thursday in the Lighty Student Services Building.
