Laurentian continues push for architecture school

March 26, 2010

Laurentian University president Dominic Giroux is "cautiously optimistic" that the university will able to launch its proposed architecture school in September 2011 as planned at a temporary site in downtown Sudbury. The goal is to have a permanent site ready in 2013-14. The business case for the school calls for $35 million for the permanent location and $9 million for startup costs and the temporary site. The City of Sudbury, as well as other funding agencies and private-sector partners, have come forward with funding. Laurentian needs to raise about another $21 million for the project. Sudbury Star
