Appalachian Regional Commission Grant Will Help Fund New Equipment for Academic Program at the Kent State Salem Campus

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Kent State University received new federal resources to update equipment for academic programs at its Salem campus. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) awarded a $35,000 grant for the school to update equipment and purchase an ultrasound scanner for the new Health and Sciences Wing at its Salem campus.

“Students at Kent State University deserve up-to-date equipment for their academic instruction,” Brown said. “These federal resources will help ensure that Kent State University students can receive a high-tech education.”

According to the Appalachian Regional Commission, the project will support improved academic instruction for more than 130 students and at least 75 trainees in the next three years. In addition to ARC funds, local resources will also provide $35,000 for the project.
