Gov. Nixon giving $10 million in state money to MU college of business

Gov. Nixon announced he is releasing $10 million in state funding to build a new learning center for students with MU’s Trulaske College of Business. The taxpayer money will match another $10 million in private donations.

“Missouri’s continued economic growth and commitment to strict fiscal discipline has positioned us to make smart investments in higher education, like the ones we’re making right here at the University of Missouri-Columbia,” said Gov. Nixon.

The four-story building will have an auditorium with 250 seats, class labs and executive-style classrooms. The Applied Learning Center will be built on the corner of Rollins Avenue and Tiger Avenue near Stankowski Field.

“The new Applied Learning Center at Trulaske College of Business will help to create a bridge for our students as they transition into rewarding business careers,” said University of Missouri Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. “I want to thank Gov. Nixon and the General Assembly for their continued commitment to our campus and our students.”
