NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents will meet Tuesday afternoon at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.

The Regents are expected to approve Gregg Garn as the new dean of the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education.

Garn is currently the college’s interim dean and has held this position since July 1.

OU President David Boren will present his recommendations for the new campus tobacco policy, based on the suggestions of his tobacco policy advisory committee. These recommendations will include the designation of on-campus smoking areas.

Other items to be addressed are the replacement of the Robert M. Bird Heath Sciences Library roof at the OU Health Sciences Center, the proposed indoor workout facility for the women’s intercollegiate rowing team and the consolidation of Athletics Department storage needs.

The Regents will address a recommendation to hire a company for the Bird Library roof replacement, thereby minimizing disruption of services and potential damage to the building’s furniture and equipment.

The proposed practice facility for the women’s rowing intercollegiate team is approximately 24,000 square feet and will include a rowing tank and workout area, team room, coaches’ offices, lockers, showers and laundry facilities.
