MARQUETTE, MI-- The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees has approved funding for three capital projects.
At a meeting Friday the board authorized $20.5 million for the renovation of the University Center. Construction on the two-year project is set to begin in May.
The board also approved $150,000 for Phase II of the Forensic Research Lab on campus and renovations to the Superior Dome football office and academic area. The dome project would cost $700,000, but is contingent on reaching a private fundraising goal.
