SUNY New Paltz breaks ground on new tech hub

NEW PALTZ – SUNY officials broke ground on Tuesday for a new Engineering Innovation Hub, a state-of-the-art facility to support and diversify the SUNY New Paltz engineering programs and support collaboration between the college and local industry.

The groundbreaking “represents a clear example of what we can achieve in the interest of our students and the Hudson Valley region through vision, advocacy, collaboration and perseverance,” said college President Dr. Donald Christian.

The 19,500-square foot academic building is being paid for with $10 million from the SUNY 2012 grant program and another $1 million from the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council’s Consolidated Funding Application.

The investment is projected to yield an overall economic impact of more than $75 million, and 195 jobs, over a 10-year period.       

SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson was among those who participated in the ceremonial groundbreaking.
