Del Tech Community College Wants Funding Above Governor's Budget Proposal

Feb 29, 2012


      DOVER, Del. (AP) - The president of Delaware Technical Community College is asking state lawmakers to approve an additional $10 million for capital funding over Gov. Jack Markell's recommendation if funds become available.

     Delaware Tech President Lonnie George tells WDEL Radio the money would be used to expand instructional space. He says the school needs additional classrooms, science labs and computer labs.

     If no additional state funds are available, George says Delaware Tech will find another way to expand facilities. He says the school can also seek federal grants and private funding for smaller projects.
