· Establishment of the Water for Food Institute at the University of Nebraska.

(Addendum IX-A-1)

· The purchase of student housing in Curtis from the University of Nebraska Foundation. The purchase would allow the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture to acquire 68 beds of housing at an attractive price. When combined with planned new housing of 76 beds, the purchase would enable NCTA to meet the requirements of LB959 and thereby gain the capital funding for the Education Center project appropriated by the 2010 Legislature. (Addendum IX-B-1)

· A resolution related to financing for the Education Center and student housing projects at NCTA. (Addendum IX-B-2)

· The program statement and budget for the Community Engagement Center at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The proposed center, which would be privately funded, would enhance UNO’s nationally recognized community engagement efforts. (Addendum IX-B-3)

· A gift of the design and funds to construct an addition to the Lied Center for Performing Arts. (Addendum IX-B-4)

· The construction agreement with NEBCO Inc. for design and construction of an indoor practice facility at Haymarket Park. (Addendum IX-B-5)

· The program statement and budget for East Stadium improvements at UNL. The project would renovate and expand East Stadium, increase stadium seating by about 5,000 seats and provide for more game-day amenities. Shell space also will be created for future UNL research office and laboratory space. (Addendum IX-B-6)

· The mediated settlement agreement with the Big 12 Conference and member institutions regarding the economic consequences of UNL’s withdrawal from the conference. (Addendum IX-B-7)
