DANVILLE – Governor Pat Quinn today announced a $315,594 grant to Lakeview College of Nursing in Danville, part of $90 million set aside this fiscal year in the Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program to address the critical needs of the state’s private colleges and universities. Today’s announcement is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to improve higher education in Illinois while creating thousands of construction jobs for the state’s workers.
“Private colleges like Lakeview provide a valuable service to Illinois, and this grant will help them address critical needs and stay competitive,” Governor Quinn said.
Lakeview may use the funds for campus infrastructure improvements.
So far under Governor Quinn’s Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program, private universities have received $200 million to address their capital needs.
