University 'wish list' process might change

JACKSON — The state College Board likely will change how it ranks campus improvement projects that appear on its annual legislative wish list.

For years, the board has submitted a system-wide ranking of facility needs based on a scale that emphasizes factors such as safety and legal obligations.

But often the list has contradicted requests coming directly from campuses through presidents and other lobbyists.

[ITAL]The Clarion-Ledger[ITAL] reported Nov. 10 that the College Board will consider a proposal at its regular meeting next week to let universities’ opinions lead and ditch the priority scale.

College Board member Doug Rouse said he feels the university president know best what their campuses need.
