On Tuesday, August 21, 2012, Joe Robach participated in the ground breaking that marked the start of construction on a new liberal arts education building at The College at Brockport. The new building will be over 60,000 square feet and located to the east of the Drake Memorial Library. The building is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014, with a projected cost of over $29 million. It is the first new academic building on The College at Brockport’s campus in 40 years. The building will house the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, which include the departments of English, History, Modern Languages & Cultures, Philosophy and Women & Gender Studies. Joe Robach knows how important it is to provide students with state-of-the art education buildings to enhance their college experience. Funding for the project is coming from the SUNY Educational Facilities Five Year Capital Plan, which Joe Robach is proud to support.
