The objectives that are sought out in the plan are for new student-housing, labs and research facilities.
The new student housing will be the larger portion of the project, consisting of $54.8 million of the budget. The new complex will consist of 61 one-bedroom units, 47 two-bedroom units and 75 four-bedroom units that are anticipated to be finished Aug. 15. This new complex will primarily be available for graduate and upperclassmen students.
The second phase of the project encompasses a new Petroleum Engineering lab and research building incurring a cost of $22.8 million. This building will include state-of-the-art equipment and is set to be finished Feb. 14th.
The last phase of the project is to upgrade Biology and College of Human Science buildings which will incur just under $20 million of the budget.

According to the The Chronicle of Higher Education, research presented at the Association for the Study of Higher Education has shown that state expenditures on college construction for higher-education does not coincide with the rise or fall of the economy. The study has also shown that college construction spending tended to rise in the best and worst of times, while tending to fall when the budget for state spending was fairly stable. According to James C. Palmer, who oversees an annual survey of state higher-education spending and is a professor of higher-education at Illinois State University, says “The new study shows the planning of capital projects is a different beast than the planning of annual budget cycles that the states go through.”
