Gov. Pat Quinn today visited the University of Illinois at Chicago to announce a $2.8 capital grant that will help the College of Dentistry receive an emergency generator, as well as a new fire alarm and sprinkler systems. The project will also result in new lighting systems, windows and elevators.

"It's important to have healthy teeth," said Gov. Quinn." "I want to salute all the students, teachers and staff here at UIC. This institution provides top notch dental care across Illinois and this will enable the structures to become 21st century-ready."

The Capital Development Board (CDB), which administers all state-funded, non-road construction projects in Illinois, will facilitate the project. Construction is expected to begin next year.

The improvements will also bode more sustainable buildings for the dental school.

"The facilities will be more sustainable," said Gov. Quinn. "We're not just going to paint them green. Graduates from this college are among the top recruited for employment across the country and as long as I am governor, we are not cutting back on brain power. As long as grass grows and the water flows, this school will produce positive, good things."
