SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)
Branch campus of George Mason University in the Republic of Korea. Authorizes the board of visitors of George Mason University to establish and operate a branch campus of the university in the Republic of Korea. This bill also authorizes the board of visitors to create a corporation or other legal entity, controlled by the board of visitors, to establish and operate the branch campus and allows the board of visitors to pursue planning and development of the branch campus. Certain provisions customary for the establishment of branch campuses of institutions in foreign lands and constitutional protections for Virginians either teaching or matriculating at the branch campus have been included. The corporation that may be created by the board of visitors of George Mason University is deemed a sole source provider under the Virginia Public Procurement Act (§ 2.2-4300 et seq.). This act will expire on July 1, 2012, if the board of visitors does not create a corporation or other legal entity in accordance with the provisions of this act.
