SXU to receive $1.25 million in federal funding to upgrade campus library, develop STEM education center

Funding comes from spending bill signed by President Obama

Chicago (Dec. 28, 2009) President Barack Obama signed an omnibus spending bill containing $1.25 million for Saint Xavier University to upgrade its Chicago campus library and develop a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education center at its Orland Park campus.

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) and Senator Dick Durbin worked together to secure funding for Saint Xavier’s library improvements and other local projects. Congresswoman Judy Biggert (IL-13) procured funding for the STEM center.

The University will receive $750,000 to update the Robert and Mary Rita Murphy Stump Library. Funds will be used to develop digital literacy programs, mobile computer labs and online communications systems providing live web casts, on-demand materials, and lecture and distance learning programs.

The University also will receive $500,000 to support STEM collaboration and partnerships with schools in Chicago’s south suburbs. The STEM Education Center will feature a state-of-the-art methods lab that will be used to provide hands-on science, math and technology programs designed to increase teachers’ knowledge and skills in these areas. Saint Xavier University School of Education staff will conduct site visits to schools in order to assess current and future progress and needs, and provide support and programming to teachers and administrators throughout the region.

“The Saint Xavier community is grateful to President Obama, Senator Durbin, Congressman Lipinski and Congresswoman Biggert or their dynamic leadership and commitment to higher education, as demonstrated by their efforts to secure federal funding for important renovation and development projects at our university,” said Angela Durante, Ph.D., Interim President and Provost of Saint Xavier. “The state-of-the-art technological improvements to the Stump Library at the Chicago Campus, and the development of a new STEM Education Center at our Orland Park Campus, all made possible by this funding, will result in great benefits to Saint Xavier students and be valuable resources to those wider communities as well.”

How about using some of that money to update our actual book collection? The fact that there are professors who encourage students to NOT use our library for research material because of how outdated it is should be a sure sign that we need to update our materials.
