The pace on campus may slow in the summer, but progress never stops at Central Michigan University.
In the months since commencement ceremonies in early May, CMU has unveiled and made progress on a new strategic plan, hired a new director of athletics, announced new academic programs and fought back from a major flood.
And even apart from that flood, more than 50 projects (including completion of the
Grawn Hall renovation) kept construction crews busy this summer.
On the tuition front, the Board of Trustees kept CMU's cumulative undergraduate tuition increase the lowest among Michigan's 15 public universities over the past eight years.
Here's a roundup of these stories and more of the biggest news from the summer.
