UC Merced is running out of space to keep up with growing enrollment. Now, the university is asking the UC Board of Regents to expand campus offices to downtown Merced. FM89’s Diana Aguilera reports.
The regents will vote Wednesday whether to approve $1.3 million dollars for construction of a campus administrative center in downtown Merced.
Daniel Feitelberg, vice chancellor of planning and budget at UC Merced, says bringing offices to the downtown area is vital not only for the university but also for the city.
