Board of trustees inches closer to resource center

UNC’s Board of Trustees meeting on Friday detailed plans for their fundraising campaign, which will involve reaching out to alumni.

They also provided an update to the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center that many students have been waiting for progress on for months, and announced the potential for a sale of the Old Man Mountain property, nestled on the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park on the outskirts of Estes Park, that is owned by the university.

A house has been located south of the University Center that could serve as a Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, in a similar way to cultural center houses such as the Marcus Garvey and the Cesar Chavez Cultural Centers. University officials are still waiting on estimates for the house, but hope to have the center ready by April 15.

Students have been pushing the board to make faster progress on the center for months. 

The Old Man Mountain property, used frequently for retreats to the mountains by on campus organizations like the Housing and Residential Education department, has an interested buyer in the Nature Conservancy, a non-profit dedicated to preserving natural places in Colorado. The property has been valued at $800,000, and has not been sold yet. The board simply authorized President Kay Norton to continue negotiating the sale with the Nature Conservancy. 

The board also approved a new degree program, the MA in Foundations of Professional Psychology. 

The audience area was full to capacity, primarily because of students wearing Trans Visibility Month shirts and raising awareness of transgender issues. 

Friday’s meeting was the last board of trustees meeting for the spring semester.
