Fiscal 2017 Capital Budget Request

The Governor’s fiscal 2017 capital budget provides $8 million for three projects at MICUA institutions. MICUA requests $9.6 million for these projects.   

Institution                                           Governor’s Allowance            MICUA’s Request     
Capitol Technology University                  $1.4 million                            $1.6 million
Johns Hopkins University                         $3.3 million                             $4.0 million
Maryland Institute College of Art              $3.3 million                             $4.0 million                                                           

  • Capitol Technology University plans to construct a multipurpose building to include both student housing and academic space.  The academic portion of the facility will house flexible learning spaces, student work areas, an energy engineering lab, a cyber-forensics lab, a mobile computing and gaming lab, and an innovation and collaboration center for individual and team project work.  The total cost of the project is $18 million, of which $3.3 million is academic space.

  • Johns Hopkins University plans to renovate Macaulay Hall to create new and modern laboratory, research, and support spaces for the departments of biophysics, chemistry, neuroscience, and psychological brain sciences.  The 39,100 square foot renovated space will enable JHU to house 8 additional research faculty and their teams in a multidisciplinary research environment.  In addition, the facility will house the Integrated Imaging Center, which requires highly particular environmental specifications for its state-of-the-art electron microscopes and imaging instruments that are utilized by the University and the greater Baltimore research community.  The total cost of the project is $30 million

  • Maryland Institute College of Art plans to demolish the Dolphin Building—a 10,000 square foot former automotive building—and construct a new 25,000 square foot facility at that location.  The project will create additional classrooms, studios, digital printing and prototyping labs, and faculty space dedicated to printmaking, three-dimensional design, and a proposed new major in product design.  The total cost of the project is $8.1 million.
These are excellent academic projects that are well-aligned with the goals identified in the Maryland State Plan for Postsecondary Education and that support important local initiatives in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County. The State’s investment in these projects will leverage more than $46 million in private resources and support more than 400 new jobs.
