Excerpt from the Daily Barometer:
Thanks to funding from student fees, private donors, Native American tribes of Oregon, construction is set to begin in March. The Native American Cultural Center, which has been a part of the Oregon State University campus for 40 years, will finally be getting a new home this spring, as approval to begin construction on a new center was recently granted. The Native American Cultural Center is under Intercultural Student Services, so a portion of the funding for the new building is coming from students and private donors. However, Native American tribes of Oregon have also given support in the form of grants to help get the project off the ground.
The new center will be located on the south side of the current longhouse at 311 SW 26th St., where a parking lot now sits. Groundbreaking is set to happen in March, with construction to begin shortly after.
