Armstrong Atlantic State University on Wednesday announced a major initiative for the Armstrong-Liberty Center. In partnership with the city of Hinesville, the university will build an expanded, new facility in downtown Hinesville to accommodate more students, programs, classroom and laboratory space.
“This formalizes construction of a long-anticipated and much-needed facility,” Armstrong President Linda Bleicken said. “Our partnership with the city of Hinesville allows an expanded presence to create new educational pathways in the region for students of all ages.”
The Armstrong-Liberty Center expansion will be funded with $6 million in infrastructure and land acquisition from Hinesville and $4.7 million in state funding. Groundbreaking could begin as early as fall 2013, and classes are projected to begin at the new center in spring 2015.
