Funds available for upgrades at NJ’s public colleges and universities

With the signing into law of S-2897, sponsored by Sen. Tom Kean, $34.3 million has been made available to fund capital improvement projects at public institutions of higher education statewide. The money represents the remaining funds available through the Building Our Future Bond Act, also sponsored by Kean and signed into law in 2012.

The projects funded by S-2897 include a new life sciences and engineering research facility at NJIT; state-of-the art technology-equipped instructional and research building at Stevens Institute of Technology; reconstruction of the William Paterson University Hunziker Building for laboratories and general-use classrooms; renovations to the Edison Science Building at Monmouth University; new Art Therapy facility at Caldwell University; and new Health Sciences Building at Union County College.
