CLEMSON – Clemson University trustees approved the school’s budget of $1,090,752,000 for the 2016-17 fiscal year as they convened on campus for their quarterly meetings.

Brett Dalton, vice president for finance and operations, said the monetary resources would support programs, personnel and facilities to enhance safety and security, continue academic quality, ensure compliance and protect the value of “the Clemson experience.”

The trustees also approved a plan to demolish the Clemson House, a residential and office facility built in 1950 as a hotel. The aged building was the university’s most expensive housing building to operate and was determined to be cost-prohibitive to renovate and bring up to current standards.

Addressing academic programs, the trustees approved a new Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) Center, to be housed in the mechanical engineering department this fall. It will support educational, research and industrial use of software programs that allow companies to integrate software, data management and analytics, and business process to improve product development, manufacturing and marketing.

In other business, the board:

- agreed to give input to the history task force implementation committee as it updates biographies of Clemson’s historical figures and signage for Tillman Hall by fall semester.
- approved a resolution requesting refunding Series 2007B and Series 2011B state institution bonds.
- renewed the three-year lease for office space at Eagles Landing in Seneca.
