CHICAGO - Governor JB Pritzker today joined University of Illinois leaders and other stakeholders to break ground on a new Computer Design, Research, and Learning Center (CDRLC) at the University of Illinois Chicago. The new 135,000 square foot Center will provide state-of-the-art facilities for research and innovation, accommodate the rapidly increasing undergraduate enrollment in computer science, and become a major campus hub. Construction of the new $118 million center is partially funded by a $98 million funding allocation from Rebuild Illinois, Governor Pritzker's bipartisan capital plan and the first in nearly a decade.
