State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced over $2 million in state funds to Kent State University (KSU) for renovations to Moulton Hall, which will house the expanding KSU College of Public Health.


“These investments lay the groundwork for Kent State to remain a leader in public health in Northeast Ohio,” said Rep. Clyde. “Kent State’s vision for the College of Public Health has been remarkable, and I am excited to see what lies ahead.”


Established in 2009, the college has grown from 70 to 879 students, which has strained existing resources. Nearly $2.1 million in state funding will go toward extensive renovations to Moulton Hall to provide over 9,000 square feet of additional state-of-the-art classroom, administrative and research space for the college.


An additional $26,175 in state funds will be used for design service contracts for the project.


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