CALGARY, ALTA. - Infrastructure funding for Mount Royal University will help students access a new innovation hub while reducing the campus' environmental footprint.
Mount Royal will receive $5.5 million from the provincial and federal governments to update mechanical systems and develop the Social Innovation Hub. Both projects will be funded under the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund.
Improving the lighting and air system will allow for individual room control, resulting in better management of student and academic spaces while lowering operating costs and increasing campus energy efficiency, explains a release.
In addition, the development of the Social Innovation Hub will provide students, faculty and community members with a dedicated space to share ideas and address social and environmental challenges.
