(1) A civil, state, religious, or public organization seeking to develop and to operate a research park may make application to the commissioner of school and public lands for conveyance pursuant to § 5-9-34.

Upon any reversion, the land shall once again be placed under the control of the Board of Regents as part of the campus from which it was originally severed; or
(2) The Board of Regents may select other lands under its control of equal value, as determined by the commissioner of school and public lands, and exchange such other lands for those comprising the research park in order to maintain the principal of the school and public lands trust.Source:
