Quinn touts money for Bradley University, Eureka College
“If you look at the partnership between the public money and the private money, it becomes an accelerator. We’re able to start our construction almost a year ahead of when we thought we would be able to start our project,” Arnold says.
More than $90 million was set aside this year for private colleges as part of the state’s capital construction programs. Quinn announced the funding at Bradley University including three-million-dollars for Bradley’s Westlake Hall. Renovations to Westlake Hall were complete and the building reopened more than a year ago.
