$61 Million Headed to CWU for a New Science Facility

The state construction budget approved by the Washington Legislature and signed by  Governor Jay Inslee includes $61million for a science facility at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. Central spokesperson Linda Schoekler says “the project is the second phase of a project that started in 1998, that was the science building that now houses biology and chemistry and the Legislature said we can only afford to go half and you will get the second half later, and now is later.”

This was the largest amount of money awarded to a university by the legislature in the capital budget this year. “This was the culmination of a community-wide effort,”said CWU President James L. Gaudino, noting the project drew support from local business and education leaders, the City of Ellensburg, alumni, residents and current and retired faculty and staff.”

The budget also includes $6 million for infrastructure required to connect the facility to university information, power and other utilities. The new facility is expected to open by January 2015.
