West Georgia Will NOT Go D1 | Dr. Marrero Outlines Plans For 2020 – The WOLF News

By Bode Brooks, The WOLF News Director

It’s official, the University of West Georgia has no intention of becoming a Division 1 institution by 2020. In his State of the University Town Hall meeting yesterday, President Marrero presented the University’s strategic plan to be implemented by 2020.

In his address, President Marrero stated, “I will not place the burden on students. I will not raise fees.” It was made clear yesterday that the priorities of West Georgia students are being kept in mind with regards to how their money is being spent. The price of becoming a D1 institution in the immediate future is just too much to levy on students at the current time, and can’t be done without an increase in fees.

Although some members of the student community are disheartened by the recent news, Dr. Marrero also outlined yesterday future plans for UWG’s infrastructure, most notably a multi-million dollar expansion and renovation of the Biology building, set to begin in Spring 2017. (Pictured below)

Marrero also outlined the $120 million renovation plans set for the Murphy Building, Richards College of Business, Humanities/Pafford/Boyd Hall Quad Renovation and Expansion, Substation Relocation, Baseball Stadium relocation to the Athletic Complex, Track and Field, Tennis Complex, and New Student Housing (500 beds) to be completed by 2020.
