NORMAN – The purchase of an audio sound system for Paul F. Sharp Concert Hall and the L. Dale Mitchell Baseball Park Expansion project at the University of Oklahoma will be among the items to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 26 and 27, at Cameron University in Lawton.

The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the McMahon Centennial Complex with Regents considering OU items. The meeting will continue at 10 a.m. Thursday in the same location, with Regents considering items submitted by Rogers State University, followed by those submitted by Cameron University.

The Regents will consider awarding a purchase order for an audio sound system for Sharp Concert Hall in Catlett Music Center. The largest music hall on campus, Sharp Concert Hall is a multi-use venue that hosts events ranging from speaking engagements to musical theatre events. Its current system is limited, requiring the frequent lease of additional sound systems to meet higher-quality audio requirements. The proposed sound system will enhance the ever-growing variety of events held in Sharp Hall and will benefit university students as they gain practical experience and marketable skills while mastering the functional operation of the advanced technology.

The OU Board also will discuss the awarding of a contract for construction of the first phase of the L. Dale Mitchell Baseball Park Expansion project, which identifies the need for updates and improvements to spectator seating, fan amenities and team facilities. Plans include backstop netting, new lower bowl seating, and dugout improvements.

Also during their meeting Wednesday, the Regents will consider the awarding of a contract for construction of the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center Building 4 West Data Center renovation project. The new Data Center will allow OU-Tulsa to enhance the reliability of its information technology systems and also will provide space for future growth of the IT infrastructure. The project includes the modification of approximately 7,500 square feet of space on the third floor of Building 4 West to create the data center, a conference room, technician’s work space and office support spaces.

The next meeting of the OU Board of Regents is scheduled for Dec. 1 in Norman.
