The University of Houston System Board of Regents will conduct its June meeting beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Shamrock Room, University Hilton.

Among the board's agenda items are appointments to the Systemwide Art Acquisition Committee, including naming Blaffer Gallery Director and Chief Curator Don Bacigalupi chair of the committee.

The board will also consider making former College of Education Dean William Georgiades a professor emeritus of education.

In other business, the board will vote on a contract with Brailsford and Dunlavey to act as consultants for a proposed Recreation and Wellness Facility.

If approved, B&D would investigate possibilities for a student recreation facility and would coordinate a student referendum at the university, since any such facility would be financed by a student fee.
