NORMAN – Two projects – the Scholars Walk and the Radar Innovations Laboratory – both on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, will be among the items to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday and Thursday, March 28 and 29, in Norman.

The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday in Oklahoma Memorial Union with items submitted by Cameron University, then Rogers State University. The meeting will continue at 9:30 a.m. Thursday with items submitted by OU.

The Regents will consider a recommendation related to components of the Scholars Walk and Asp Avenue Reconstruction project. Construction of Scholars Walk, a pedestrian mall featuring sculptures honoring students with outstanding academic achievements that will run north from Lindsey Street to tie into the Brooks Pedestrian Mall, is expected to commence in early or mid-year 2013.

The board also will discuss the Radar Innovations Laboratory, to be located on the university’s Research Campus. The new, approximately 36,000-gross-square-foot facility will provide much-needed space for radar researchers and enhance recruitment of top researchers in this field.  It also will create open working space for research efforts pertaining to the design, assembly and testing of radar system components and provide office space for 20 researchers and up to 60 graduate students, with supporting fabrication shops and test areas. The Regents also will rank firms under consideration to provide construction management services for the project and authorize the university to negotiate terms of an agreement for the project.

The next meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for May 10 and 11 in Norman.
