Northern State University has been approved for $29.5 million in federal funds to help complete the new Lincoln Hall project.
According to Northern State, the Northern Health and Innovation center will be built on the site of Lincoln and Briscoe halls after they are razed beginning next year.
“The Business and Health Innovation Center positions Northern to meet critical workforce needs in business, banking, finance, accounting and nursing,” said Dr. Neal Schnoor, president of Northern. “It is a generational opportunity to advance regional health and economic development.”
The plans is to have the new building finished for the fall of 2025. The additional $29.5 million comes from money in the American Rescue Plan Act, passed by congress during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
