Tarleton State University awarded $2.73 million facilities grant

Tarleton State University recently won a three-year, $2.73 million grant to develop the American Clearinghouse on Education Facilities. The Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools awarded the grant to help ensure that public schools are designed efficiently to encourage learning.

The program will use a Web site, distance learning, online journals and on-site training programs to help in the planning, design, financing, construction, improvement, operations and maintenance of educational facilities by working with educational institutions to make sure that the facilities are designed efficiently and resourcefully, said Dr. Mark Littleton, a professor of educational leadership and policy studies who will serve as project director.

The funding will provide three additional doctoral fellows for 12 months, Littleton said.
