WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita State University is getting a $1 million federal grant for its new innovation campus.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1NMA4Q6 ) that the grant from the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration will go toward roads and water lines to support the Experiential Engineering Building, the first building at the new innovation campus.

The department says in a release that the building will create 448 experiential engineering jobs within three years.

Wichita State is scheduled to announce more details about the grant during a press conference Wednesday.

Matt S. Erskine, U.S. deputy assistant secretary of commerce for economic development, and Wichita State University President John Bardo are scheduled to speak at the event.
