Pace University will add programming for students preparing for careers in the region’s healthcare and biotechnology sector while adding to and modernizing existing lab, classroom, and simulation space.
The grant, awarded as part of the New York State’s Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program, is intended to increase preparation, laboratories, and facilities in health sciences throughout the state, all with the goal of meeting technology demands in the healthcare sector and preparing much-needed nurses in New York State.
“The new Healthcare Hub on our Pleasantville campus will enable Pace University to continue our proud tradition of educating nurses and other health professionals in such high demand in our region,” says Pace President Marvin Krislov.
The state grant to Pace University is part of $57.2 million provided to 35 colleges and universities across New York State. All recipients must invest $3 for every $1 the state provides.
“These state investments in higher-ed capital projects are smart-growth, job-creating engines that will benefit our communities for years to come,” says New York State Sen. Pete Harckham.
