“For an institution where ideas are created, the concept of inspirational space matters”, according to CSU President, Tony Frank. The campus transformation is “helping cement CSU as a college choice for thousands of additional out-of-state students and support hundreds of millions of dollars in annual research grants,” adds the Coloradoan.
