Keuka College Awarded Capital Matching Grant Funds – Finger Lakes Daily News

Keuka College is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded capital matching grant funds from the New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) Office of Higher Education. The grant, which totals $1.25 million, will be used to support the college’s ongoing efforts to improve and expand its facilities.

The funds will be used to support the creation of a new science and technology center, which will promote hands-on learning and innovative research in fields such as environmental science, biology, and computer science. The center will feature state-of-the-art equipment and technology, including laboratories, classrooms, and collaborative workspaces.

In addition to the science and technology center, the grant will also be used to support renovations to existing facilities, including the college’s athletic facilities, library, and student center. These renovations will enhance the overall student experience and provide a more welcoming and supportive environment for students.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded this capital matching grant,” said Keuka College President Dr. José E. Cruz. “This funding will enable us to make significant improvements to our facilities, which will ultimately benefit our students and the broader community. We are grateful for the support of the New York State Education Department and look forward to breaking ground on these exciting projects soon.”

The grant is one of several awarded to institutions of higher education across the state as part of the NYSED’s Capital Matching Grant Program. The program is designed to support colleges and universities in their efforts to modernize and expand their facilities, with a focus on promoting student success and community engagement.
