Bloomfield set to receive $2.5 million in N.J. capital project grants

BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – To help further its continued effort to remain at the forefront of cutting edge education, Bloomfield College will receive $2.5 million in capital project grants from the State of New Jersey, President Richard Levao announced today.

“We are delighted to be part of the state-wide effort to upgrade higher education facilities,” Levao said of the awards bestowed on the College. “These funds will help us provide a first-class educational experience to those who enroll at Bloomfield College.”

The largest state award, valued at $2.2 million, will help fund the transformation of the institution’s on-campus Student Center into the new academic home of the College’s renowned Creative Arts and Technology (CAT) program. Totaling $7.4 million in renovations, the project (scheduled to be completed in 2015) will help the division remain one of the most innovative programs in the country in fields such as animation, game design, digital video and music technology.

Bloomfield will also receive a second award for $300,000, which will be matched by college funds to create a new high-speed fiber optic data network and five new smart classrooms. Complete with cameras, projectors and audio equipment, the new rooms will help support the need for an enriched teaching environment, and will create a significant impact on the implementation of the College’s distance and in-person learning programs.

“Technology is an important part of our educational delivery system, and this project will dramatically increase the speed of our network,” Levao remarked. “This will subsequently increase the use of multimedia programming, allowing us to greatly expand the educational experience provided to students at Bloomfield.”
