OU Board of Regents to Meet in Norman

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3-25-14

NORMAN – The naming of the University of Oklahoma College of Law south oval drive and the Imhoff Road reconstruction project are among topics to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday and Thursday, March 26 and 27, in Norman.

The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the Scholars Room of Oklahoma Memorial Union with items submitted by Cameron University considered first followed by those submitted by Rogers State University. The meeting will resume at 9 a.m. Thursday for consideration of OU agenda items.   

The board will consider a recommendation to name the oval drive on the south side of the OU College of Law the “Professor Frank and Edna Asper Elkouri Oval.” For almost 60 years, College of Law professor emeritus Frank Elkouri and his wife, Edna Asper Elkouri, were integral to the fabric of the law school. Professor Elkouri joined the OU law faculty in 1952. Though he retired in 1985, he continued his leadership at the law school through 2010 as an inspirational mentor and accomplished scholar. In 2011, the Elkouris made the largest one-time contribution in the history of the law school – a $6 million gift to support student scholarship programs in the OU College of Law. The Elkouris both recently passed away – Frank on Jan. 18, 2013, and Edna on Feb. 17, 2014.

The OU Board will also consider a proposal for the award of a contract for the reconstruction of Imhoff Road north of Lloyd Noble Center between Jenkins Avenue and Chautauqua Avenue. The project would include roadway replacement, a new structural subgrade, new subsurface storm drainage, curbs, gutters and paving.

The next regular meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for May 8 and 9 in Norman.
