Southern University at Baton Rouge will receive $1.6 million in funding for the 2010-2011 fiscal year from the U.S. Department of Education.

Chancellor Kofi Lomotey said the funding comes from the DOE’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Institution Aid Program. It will be used for a variety of needs and programs on the local campus, some of which include remodeling and upgrading the Computer Science Department, College of Sciences classrooms and the Frank Hayden Fine Arts building. Infrastructure improvements and the upgrading of a campus-wide technology system will also be funded.

“These improvements are vital to the future of the Baton Rouge campus,” said Lomotey. “This funding helps us continue our efforts to maintain a comfortable environment for learning and teaching.”
