FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan is moving forward on plans for a battery fabrication laboratory and renovations at the Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

The Ann Arbor News and The Michigan Daily report the school’s Board of Regents approved the projects during a Thursday meeting in Flint. Work is to be completed by fall 2015.

Under the plans, $1.6 million would be spent on the lab at the school’s Energy Institute. More than $1.7 million would be spent on the other project.

Meanwhile, the regents also approved plans to name a business school building after an alumnus who donated $5 million for an expansion. The Stephen M. Ross School of Business will designate a new academic building as Jeff T. Blau Hall when it is built.
