Ursuline College Receives $607,754 Energy Efficiency Grant
Ursuline College was awarded a $607,754 federal grant to improve energy efficiency on campus. The award is a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant: Local Governments and State Energy Program and is intended to raise energy efficiency and provide cost-effective energy alternatives for Ohioans. Ursuline is one of 14 Ohio recipients receiving aid.
The stimulus funds will allow the College to renovate the Mullen Academic Building to be more energy efficient through window replacements, upgrades to the ventilation and air conditioning systems and lighting retrofits. “Ursuline is proud to have the support of Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and we look forward to the energy efficiency improvements that will be made possible through this grant,” said Ursuline President Sister Diana Stano.
As a Catholic liberal arts college, focusing on women, Ursuline welcomes students into an academically challenging and values-based environment. Recognized for distinguished programs in nursing, fashion, social work and education, Ursuline offers more than 30 undergraduate and ten graduate degrees in four schools including arts and sciences, nursing, professional and graduate studies.
