The University of Minnesota Board of Regents is expected to give final approval to $120 million worth of new projects.

All of the money comes from the Minnesota Legislature.

A large portion of the money -- $56 million – is expected to go toward renovations of the 87-year-old Tate Laboratory on the Twin Cities campus. Another $10 million will go toward the Crookston campus Wellness Center.

The Board of Regents is also expected to take up next year’s proposed budget for the university before voting on it Friday. That budget freezes tuition for Minnesota resident undergraduates.
