Following are other actions taken by the board at its September meeting.

The board approved a resolution that names the northeast wing of the Spartan Stadium north end zone project in recognition of the Demmer family. A gift of $3.5 million by John E. and Edward J. Demmer will help fund the construction of a new facility in that part of the stadium.

A resolution was adopted that names two entrance plazas on the north side of Spartan Stadium in honor of Craig and Vicki Brown, who donated $2 million to the project. The plazas will be named the Craig and Vicki Brown Family Northeast Plaza and the Craig and Vicki Brown Family Northwest Plaza.

The board approved a resolution naming the landscaped plaza created on the site of the former Justin S. Morrill Hall be named the Justin S. Morrill Plaza. The plaza will consist of a walkway that follows what was once Morrill Hall’s central hallway, seating and historical plaques.

The board approved the awarding of a contract for renovations to the second floor of the Hannah Administration Building. The work will include upgraded workspace, conference rooms and reception areas.

Authorization to proceed on an Olin Health Center project was approved. The upgrades include the installation of a new chiller that will be used to air condition the building.
