Rep. Clyde Announces $77,000 In State Funds For Kent State Renovation Project
Renovated Moulton Hall to house growing KSU College of Public Health
 
 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced the release of over $77,000 in state funds to Kent State University (KSU) for the next phase of renovations to Moulton Hall, which will house the expanding KSU College of Public Health.


“Kent State’s renowned College of Public Health is a major success, and thus, quickly outgrew its old space,” said Rep. Clyde. “This renovation will allow for continued growth and the opportunity for Kent State to lead the way in public health in Northeast Ohio.”


Established in 2009, the College of Public Health has grown from 70 to 879 students, which has strained existing resources. Funds will go toward upgrades at Moulton Hall, which will transform over 9,000 square feet of additional state-of-the-art classroom, administrative and research space for the college.


Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and central and southern Portage County.
