President Hurley Announces $4.4 Million HECap Award for Science Hall

President Hurley formally announced that Canisius received a $4,398,329 million Higher Education Capital Matching Grant (HECap) from New York State on Friday, March 26 in Science Hall Commons. The grant will help fund the construction of classrooms and laboratory facilities on the second level of Science Hall.

The HECap program is a competitive grant program that provides critical matching funds to private college campuses, enabling them to build, renovate and renew facilities. 

“We are pleased to be among the institutions to receive a HECap grant and thank our New York State representatives for their continued support of this critical program,” said President John J. Hurley. “Science Hall has become a hub of collaborative academic programming and a resource enjoyed by the community.  This grant will help fund the complete renovation of the second level of Science Hall – an additional 60,000 square feet of classroom and laboratory space – further enhancing our stellar Biology and Pre-med programs and the unique and nationally-recognized undergraduate Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation (ABEC) and graduate Anthrozoology programs.”

Following the announcement, New York State Senator Sean Ryan, who was in attendance, enjoyed a tour of the new PA lab space in Science Hall.
