Money Is Finally Flowing to Coppin State University

In 2001 a Maryland higher education commission concluded that Coppin State University, the historically black educational institution in western Baltimore, had been woefully underfunded since its founding in 1900. Now the state is finally doing something about it. A $400 million renovation project is under way with the construction of a new health and human services building and a new physical education complex. A new science and technology center is in the planning stages.
