$95M approved for state university upgrades
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy approved $95 million in state bonding April 2 to continue funding infrastructure improvements within the Connecticut State University System in 2014.
“Connecticut businesses must have the talent to compete globally, and our state university system is critical for training our future workforce,” Malloy said in a press release. “Over the past two years we’ve made unprecedented investments to improve education – ensuring that Connecticut’s state universities have the resources to modernize and grow is an important part of strengthening Connecticut’s economy.”
The projects, coined CSUS 2020, began in 2009 and include mechanical and electrical upgrades, new construction for inadequate facilities and other infrastructure improvements.
