Regents Roundup

The following items were approved by the Board of Regents at its Sept. 20 meeting.

Regents' Bylaw 14.06 Nondiscrimination statement now includes 'gender identity and gender expression'

The Board of Regents approved the inclusion of the words "gender identity and gender expression" to Regents' Bylaw Sec. 14.06 Nondiscrimination and Affirmative Action at the board's Sept. 20 meeting.

The change extends the protection afforded by the bylaw's nondiscrimination statement. Regents' Bylaw 14.06 was last amended in September 1993 to include sexual orientation, guaranteeing that a student, staff or faculty member will not be discriminated against because he or she is lesbian, gay or bisexual.

U-M joins more than 90 other colleges and universities around the country that include phrases covering gender identity and gender expression in their nondiscrimination policies.

University spokesperson Kelly Cunningham said the regents' decision reaffirms the University's long-standing commitment to diversity and creating an environment where all feel welcome and safe.

UMHS Clinical Research to move

U-M's General Clinical Research Center (GCRC) will relocate to the Cardiovascular Center next fall and the seventh-floor University Hospital space the center currently occupies will be reallocated to adult inpatient space. The Hospitals and Health Centers will fund the $6 million project that will build-out empty shell space in the new CVC to provide exam rooms, offices, conference rooms, reception and waiting areas, a kitchen, a research laboratory, exercise rooms and support spaces for the GCRC.

The architectural firm of Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott will design the project.

Bids to be sought for football practice facility

The regents approved issuing the indoor football practice facility for bids and awarding construction contracts. In July the board approved the schematic design for the new facility that will be erected along South State Street just south of Schembechler Hall. Funding for the $26.1 million project will be provided from Athletic Department resources and private gifts. Construction is scheduled to be completed in fall 2009.
