SFU receives funding

Saint Francis University has received a $2.5 million commitment toward Phase II of the Sullivan Hall Expansion and Renovation project.

The gift comes from an alumnus and spouse, longtime donors to the university, who wish to remain anonymous.

Phase II of the project will update classrooms and laboratories and add a new facade to the nearly 60-year-old building, which will become the home to the School of Health Sciences and Education.

When completed, health sciences majors will be together in one state-of-the-art facility that will provide more opportunities for interdisciplinary learning.
