Gov. Nixon announces more than $10 million in renovations at Southeast Missouri State University


Cape Girardeau, MO — Gov. Jay Nixon today visited Southeast Missouri State University to announce more than $10 million in improvements and renovations made possible through Building Affordability, an initiative proposed by the Governor in collaboration with public colleges and universities and passed with bi-partisan support in the General Assembly this year.

“Through our Building Affordability initiative, we’re making targeted investments in higher education to increase the quality of our campuses, while holding the line of tuition hikes,” said Gov. Nixon. “Keeping Missouri a leader in college affordability will ensure our students graduate with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed without mountains of debt.”

At Southeast Missouri State University, these improvements will include renovations at the Grauel Building, Crisp Hall and Brandt Hall, as well as general repairs throughout campus.
