Construction funding for the Carver Academic Renovation was received for the 2015-17 biennium. A small amount of design funding was also reappropriated in 2015-17.

The Carver Academic complex requires renovation to address both facility preservation issues and programmatic needs. Electrical and mechanical systems have exceeded their useful life and disabled access issues require attention. Predesign funding was appropriated in the 2007-2009 biennium to guide solutions for adaptive reuse of this intensively used facility located in the center of campus. A comprehensive Predesign Study was submitted to the Office of Financial Management in June 2008. Design funding was requested in the 2009-2011 biennium but no appropriation was received. A request for design funding was resubmitted in the 2011-2013 biennium and an appropriation was granted by the legislature. In July 2012, with the approval of OFM, $190,000 of unused Miller Hall Renovation construction funding was transferred to the Carver Academic Renovation project for design. This increased the 2011-13 design appropriation for Carver Academic Renovation from $6,784,000 to $6,974,000. Construction funding was requested in 2013-2015 and in the 2014 Supplemental Budget request but not granted. Construction funding was granted for the 2015-17 biennium and construction began July 2015 and will be completed in the spring of 2017.
