Message from the President to the Campus Community and Friends of the College
The Building Our Future Bond Act was approved by New Jersey voters on Tuesday with 62% in favor. With the recent storm problems in our state, I feel the high passage rate of this measure represents genuine support for the importance of higher education in New Jersey. This program will provide $200 million for New Jersey County Colleges ($150 million from the bond to be matched with $50 million by the individual colleges. At Middlesex County College, this will provide greatly needed construction and renovation support for our facilities. Our share will be $10.2 million and we will be required to match with $3.4 million for total facilities improvement initiatives of $13.6 million.
The overwhelming support from the voters provides us with new opportunities to fulfill our educational mission to the residents of Middlesex County.
Thank you and thank your family members and neighbors for their support.
Joann La Perla-Morales
