UND wants $124 million for new facility to help attract more federal funds

The University of North Dakota medical school plans to ask the Legislature next year for $124 million for a new building.

Dean Joshua Wynne tells the Grand Forks Herald (http://bit.ly/St2nXR ) that a new building would help the school cope with enrollment growth, eliminate long-term maintenance costs associated with the existing 60-year-old building and potentially bring in more federal funds. …

During the 2011 session, the medical school unsuccessfully sought $29 million for an expansion. UND ended up getting $1.8 million to train more doctors and other health care workers.
