NEW: Rhode Island College Celebrates Passage of Bond
Wednesday, November 07, 2012
Rhode Island College, thanked the voters of the state Tuesday evening for their overwhelming support of a bond referendum question, which will allocate funds for the college.
Rhode Island College was on the ballot with a referendum that will provide $50 million in renovation-construction funds for three of the college's buildings. The buildings include two of RIC's oldest and the largest classroom buildings - where all 8,000 students take one or more classes - and a portion of the building devoted to the nursing program.
The winners are RIC students
Carriuolo noted that the beneficiaries of the passage of this bond will be the students at the college. “Who will be served? The future nurses, teachers, social workers, artists, managers, lawyers, and other leaders in Rhode Island who attend Rhode Island College,” Carriuolo said. “In all, 86 percent of RIC students are Rhode Islanders at the undergraduate level, and 92 percent at the graduate level. In addition, the construction trades will also be served by adding hundreds of jobs for Rhode Islanders. This is a victory for all Rhode Islanders and on behalf of the faculty, staff and students at Rhode Island College – ‘Thank you, Rhode Island!’ ”
