Brown University says new engineering school facility will be built on main campus

Brown University says that it will build a new home for its engineering school on the institution's College Hill campus in Providence, R.I. The Providence Journal says the university's decision puts to rest speculation the university would relocate its engineering program to the city's Jewelry District, where it moved the Warren Alpert Medical School in 2011. The university announced that it has received $44 million in donations to bolster its $160 million campaign to expand its engineering school with new teaching and research space.
