As part of the state’s 2018 supplemental budget, the Legislature approved the university’s plan to shift $1.5 million in local funds to state bond funds, allowing Western to move forward with projects, including investing $1.3 million in a new marine, coastal and watershed sciences major starting in 2019.

“It really is something we’ve been missing that will be a really nice addition,” Shannon Point interim Director Brian Bingham said.
