Bush Library Takes a Step Forward at Southern Methodist U.

From Today's Chronicle of Higher Education:

Southern Methodist University’s hopes of becoming the host of a proposed George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum cleared a minor hurdle over the weekend, when local voters approved a plan to sell city-owned parkland to the university, for possible use as the library’s site, the Dallas Morning News reported. The land, currently owned by the Dallas suburb of University Park, could also be used for other campus projects. A proposal to open a public-policy institute in conjunction with the library, for which Southern Methodist is the only candidate under consideration, has been sharply controversial on the campus, with several faculty moves to partly block the plan. — Andrew Mytelka
