Hood College has received a $6M grant via the Maryland Independent College and University Association (MICUA) Capital Grant Program in support of a $20.1M project to renovate and expand the Hodson Science and Technology Center.
This project includes a 32,000-gross-square-foot addition to the Center, which was originally constructed in 1957, with additions completed in 2000 and 2014. The proposed project will accommodate growth in the College’s STEM programs, such as bioinformatics and cybersecurity.
The proposed expansion will allow Hood to meet the needs of both existing and new programs, many of which include laboratory components that have been recently introduced into the College’s curriculum. These programs require state-of-the-art lab facilities to attract prospective Maryland students, who often already have experience with and access to high-quality lab spaces in high school.ted community partners, culminating in a public on-campus guest lecture on the importance of linguistic diversity and its place within a vibrant and just community.
