Trustees name centers of excellence, honor Ribeau

The BGSU Board of Trustees worked through a lengthy agenda at its April 23 meeting, taking action on items from the granting of promotion and tenure to the upgrading of campus utilities.

The trustees approved two additional proposed centers of excellence, in 21st Century Educator Preparation and Developing Effective Businesses and Organizations.

BGSU’s architecture program will be substantially strengthened and expanded following action by the board. The board voted to convert the College of Technology’s current Architecture and Environmental Design Studies Program to the Department of Architecture and Environmental Design.

The board also honored former President Sidney Ribeau by renaming the President’s Leadership Academy for him and designating as the Ribeau Plaza the space in front of the soon-to-be-built Wolfe Center for the Arts.
