UA donors slow to give for president's office renovation

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Donations have been hard to come by for a project to renovate a University of Arizona building that will house a new executive office suite for the school's president.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that only $2.7 million has been raised for the renovations at Old Main, the Tucson campus' 1891 landmark building, since April 2013.

The work included renovating the space that will house the suite and repairing a damaged foundation and veranda.

Some alumni said they don't see why money should be spent on moving President Ann Weaver Hart and her staff into the suite. University spokesman Chris Sigurdson said others think the move is a natural fit.

The Board of Regents approved the $13.5 million renovation on the condition it be paid entirely with donations.
