Eastern Michigan University’s Roosevelt Hall is among the projects that will receive funding from the supplemental spending bill Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed this week.

The $42 million renovation is part of EMU’s larger plan to expand its GameAbove College of Engineering and Technology. The state will provide $30 million for the project, which is meant to accommodate the expected growth of the college, as it prepares students for a variety of careers, such as cybersecurity, construction management, and aviation.

The project will include relocating the college to Roosevelt Hall and updating the building's advising centers, faculty offices, and providing a collaborative space for students to work.
