BANGOR — A housing upgrade and creation of new laboratory space are among the items on the agenda when the Board of Trustees of the University of Maine System meets today.

The trustees will consider creation of two new lab spaces in a currently vacant part of the University of Southern Maine campus Bioscience Research Center. The project would be funded by the Maine Economic Improvement Fund.

They’ll also take up a plan to demolish up to 10 outdated apartment buildings and make improvements at the remaining 26 buildings, including installation of a sprinkler system, at Orono’s University Park.

Establishment of a Master of Laws one-year professional degree program at the University of Maine School of Law in Portland is also on the agenda.
