UMore Development Limited Liability Company

A UMore Development Limited Liability Company (LLC) was established by the Board of Regents in October 2009 to provide oversight and management for planning and development for the UMore Park property. In December 2009, the Board of Regents appointed nine individuals to the Board of Governors to direct the LLC.

The Board of Governors brings private sector and University expertise in planning, finance, real estate and transactional law to the planning and development process and ensures that the University's academic mission—research, teaching and public engagement—remains core to the project.
