State funding for new Florida Poly Student Achievement Center survives Governor’s veto

by The 100 Companies

Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland is getting a major boost from the state for a new Student Achievement Center, securing $5.7 million in the upcoming budget for Fiscal Year 2024-25 for the project’s preliminary design.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the budget earlier this month, leaving the line-item funding intact. He did veto one Florida Poly project, a $3 million allocation for STEM program enhancements.

The new budget takes effect July 1. The funding will come from the state’s Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) program.

The center will provide space to enhance student success, including through access to career and internship services.
